I went to town with “purple” on my mind, for some reason (!) and was shocked to see the propensity to purple all around me.
I found the purple shed behind the house that used to be purple. We are so glad the new tenants painted the house white, but the shed remains in its original orchidity.
For some reason, purple ribbons flutter all over town. Purple is not the school color; red is. So why these ribbons everywhere, I do not know.
Then, there is the motel with the purple dragon that laid the purple egg. This is an advertising ploy and attracts many families with children and red-hat ladies. And me.
Many beautiful examples of purple exist in all of creation, but these are just weird.
However, the local Hispanic restaurant uses every color in the rainbow for its decor. The fence happens to be purple.
Somehow, I don’t feel quite so weird. . . .
