Blood orange

Earth tones bring me calmness in the presence of daylight. They're reliable. Safe. Grounded. Human. Organic.

But when the sun is far gone and the purple lights turn on, everything yellow turns neon orange. The paint chips covered in the bright mustard yellow of sunflowers turn to luminescent orange that provide a heightened brightness to the hues of the room.

Yellow is more dynamic than it admits. It is multi-dimensional. It has multiple personalities that, only once it is appreciated in its presence, will be revealed. It is exciting. I am excited. Everything is 10x more exciting in neon orange.

This is why I have offered you a sample of neon orange–blood orange–here in your presence.
