and I wondered what it would be like to live in a world that had been laid bare of color.
Where would we find the joy? Because no matter how much I love beautiful black and white photos,
I would feel a profound sense of sadness if the world was reduced to only black and white.
What kind of world would it be where our only choices are so limited that there are not even shades of gray?
Sometimes I feel like we are living in that world. A world where there are no areas between the black and the white, a world where there is no compromise, a world that has had even its shades of gray removed.
But, I take heart as I close the blinds. The sun will come up. The color will appear. I choose to believe in the inherent goodness of the world.
