Something Bright NOW

It has taken most of the day to get me out of the house on my walk. Nothing but gray gray gray and varying tones of gray with patterings of translucent liquid gray falling on everything. Something bright! If only there were something bright out there. I couldn’t imagine seeing anything bright – even in the vicinity of being close to seeing something that I might define as bright – out there today but I pulled on the rain gear and dragged myself outside anyway.
Not one minute from my door and voila! The first of Hokusai’s little-known and never-before-published print series of wood blocks: “Bumbershoot.”
