What’s Your Favorite
— Read on #WYF Revenge of EveColor. A favorite color.
I increasingly notice shades and hues now that I started dabbling in paint. Even as a photographer, i was not in tune with the varying light and dark of the world, as now. I am at a peak heightened state to my existence and have never felt so alive, or as noticing of each small death, as today.
So what is my favorite color? I have asked a few people that and they choose calming colors, as i once did. At the conception of my son, an orange ball of hope swelled inside and burst onto the scene of the world at his birth. He was close to being born at the back of a NYC taxi cab and made his appearance at the hospital before the doctor arrived. Life has not had to wait for him since… he forges his own paths in all circumstances.
The color orange in life is energizing. So appropriate that my color has changed as i was asleep for so long. I am eternally grateful for the sun and the birth of my son. For the vibrancy and hope they bring to my life.
In all circumstances, Luke has been my rock. When my world trembled in 2008 it was no different. He tirelessly carried me when my legs broke from under the weight of grief.
He is every mom’s hope to have in a son. He is my sunrise and sunset and all that exists in between. He is orange.
He is currently studying for his Ph.D. in Material Science, focusing on batteries at The Ohio State, Columbus, OH. Environmentally conscious, his goal is to develop stable eco-sources of power. He rocks my world and i hope he can bring his dreams to fruition.
And as a mom, what ever girl finds herself in the gleam of his eye, please realize even the stars adore your beauty and grace. 🌎🌍🌏☀️
Happy Writing, J (i have always wanted to write a fitting tribute and he is so deserving of accolades, being as humble as he is. 💙🕊🎶🎶🎶)
