(Just a short reminiscence; no pictures, except for those you create in your mind 🙂
Sky blue pink with a heavenly border ~ that is what my Dad used to say when I would ask him his favorite color. Mom would just smile, shake her head and sigh. I would feel completely clueless.
So then, I would ask, What color is that? Big grin, followed by, Just wait, one day you will see it. Then you will know what I mean.
Well, it took several years and then some but finally one very early morning, I was driving my car after a major snowstorm. There it was, right in front of me. The sky was a mixture of blues and pinks with a border of heavenly fluffy white clouds. It was a wonderful “aha moment.”
What made me think of that memory today? Well, I will tell you.
This morning I was driving back to Interstate 40 through the town of Conway, Arkansas and what’s coming toward me but a beautiful pink sanitation truck.
It reminded me of my Dad and how he could make words paint a picture so strong in my mind that I cherished it there until I saw it in reality.
