I’ve never slowed down enough to actually look at the color.
Have you ever noticed the colors around us? Not just the blue of the sky or the blazing red and orange of a Scarlet Maple tree in the fall.
I know it’s a weird question but typically I don’t really look at the colors around me. That's why I love the Colorview app so much. Typically I simply go about my day thinking of what’s next on my to-do list, what will I make for dinner tonight or how am I going to lose that “baby fat” I gained while carrying my child (who cares it was from 36 years ago!)
The other day I was sitting in the couch knitting away and I took a break to grab a snack. The previous Saturday we had gone grocery shopping (at 6am to avoid people!) and brought home some grapes. I grabbed a handful, sat back down on the couch and started popping the grapes into my mouth.
They they tasted so good and sweet, but I failed to actually look at them.
I was down to my last 4 grapes when I noticed the color.
I finally got up and took picture of the grapes.
I looked over at My Faithful Sherpa, to see his reaction of me taking photos of grapes. He didn't even look up.

So take a minute during your next walk, while making dinner, or while standing at your car. Take a look at the colors and remember Bear's enthusiasm and appreciation for double rainbows. I bet you'll see grapes with so much more color!
