Violet Light Is Real
When we were out in P-town a couple weeks ago I was looking at some impressionist oils, a strong tradition out there, and thought to myself, as I always do, Aren't they overdoing it a bit with all those cottages and landscapes glowing in purple light? I mean, I know light has amazing qualities, but still. The following week, back home again, I looked out the kitchen door one evening, and everything was glowing violet and purple. There it was. You learn the best when you are at first mistaken, which means that henceforth I'll no longer underestimate the power and varieties of light.
