Welland Snaps: Colour It Green

DSC_5336 (2)Feeling blue? Then go for the green.

Green is therapeutic. That’s my thought. I could be wrong.

Now’s the time to be in it:  Walk in it, sit in it. run through it. I swear green rubs off on you.

But green has been painted with a bad brush. Some people relate it to envy, as in the old saying: green with envy. Others, with nausea, as in, green around the gills. These are bad raps for a good colour.

In my paint book, green is a feel-good colour.  It just makes you, well, feel good.  One thing is for sure: you won’t feel blue. Shake the blues, go green.
