Day 304: Something Beautiful—Color

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.

Of the many things we do automatically and so understandably take for granted — seeing color is one of the most magical to me. I belive I would be a profoundly different person had I been born without that ability. Recently I saw a movie where a man tried to explain color to blind children through music. Creative, poetic but wholly lacking the beautiful and intense visceral sensation of experiencing the warm, resounding gold of autumn leaves.
