G is also for...

Grey (or Gray)

where lines are drawn
the in between state of light and dark
moving clouds
soft fur and a perfect sweater
areas of the unknown or the undecided
where we are all the same
the spectrum of shades from white to black
signs of wisdom
a place to rest and not be afraid
the moments before twilight
the fog before dawn
click on the photo for the source!

Oh, my. I love the beginning poem of this. Poem, yes? It is beautiful as well as those pictures. Everyone always steps over this shade and never has time to realize the beauty in it.

Yep, that's the color I've been seeing a lot of lately. These are gorgeous! My favorites are the flags stretched between the buildings and the kitty feet.

Hi Emma!
Thanks for your comment on my photos. It's an honor coming from you...you have a great eye for photography! I can't resist adding this...I just read it last night, and now I see your grey/gray photos...so I think it needs to be here...

it's from here...p. 61 The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami

"The darkness behind my closed eyelids was like the cloud-covered sky, but the gray was somewhat deeper. Every few minutes, someone would come and paint over the gray with a different-textured gray--one with a touch of gold or green or red. I was impressed with the variety of grays that existed. Human beings were so strange. All you had to do was sit still for ten minutes, and you could see this amazing variety of grays."

Have a wonderful day.
Cindy

Emma,
I am convinced now that it is impossible to find an email address for you :-), so I am replying here. You are very welcome, I know how important the links are to you, so I feel very comfortable commenting with them here.
I'm so glad you enjoyed the quote from the book, it was amazing to me when I read it, and so it stuck in my mind. I'd love to see how you use it here.
Cindy
