If there were a week to take in the colors it would be these 7 days between Christmas and New Years. Rest of the year, colors are faded then struggle forth, but on these down days, color can be color. For what is there but to be optimistic? What is there but to dream of warmer times?
No reason to get up, not because of what keeps us down, but because these are the days we're given without cost or consequence. Happy Reprieve, all.
