Leave These Lulling Shores

Perhaps my addiction to color can all be explained by the few years I spent living in Hawaii. I know people born and raised in New York city who consider it part of their cultural heritage to wear black. Personally, I can't wear head-to-toe black...it unnerves me when I force myself to attempt it and I have to consciously decide to wear black. Unconsciously, I reach for colors in tones both neon and jewel.

When you walk through the Stadium Swapmeet with its plethora of brightly decorated stalls, or even just stroll along a beach of brilliant blue sky and turquoise water, an affection for color makes sense. It's all around you and almost overwhelming in its intensity. Every time I leave Hawaii and return to the mainland, I feel as if I have gone color blind from all the vivid, visual overload that is Oahu. So, for now my addiction to color persists.
