I’m Thinking Orange

Leave a comment

It’s time to prep for Thanksgiving and I realize once again this year that I’m surrounded by the color orange. The branches on the trees are barely holding on to vibrant leaves before winter steals those few that are left. The grocery stores are filled with pumpkins, gourds, sweet potatoes; the rest of summer’s harvest. Because orange represents the changing seasons, it’s a color on the edge, the color of change between the heat of summer and the cool of winter. Van Gogh said “there is no blue without yellow and without orange”. It conjures up thoughts of good health, vibrancy, and warmth. Orange energizes and stimulates the appetite and encourages socialization which certainly aligns with a hearty Thanksgiving table. Think orange this week and Happy Thanksgiving!
