100 Words: When the Colors Run

Remember those watercolor paint sets you got as a kid?

You used the paint by touching a wet paint brush to the color you needed.

Then you slopped the colorful blob of water onto your canvas. By the third color, your art had become a wet glob of pulp.

Eventually, the colors began to bleed into one another, you couldn't get back to the original color. Back then, I wanted the colors of my life, sharply defined.

These days, I find life to be much more beautiful, when the colors run together.

Sometimes you see colors that you never imagined.
