You know, I love the colour red and have come to realize that Christmas wouldn't be complete without it. Red presents, red baubles and beads on the tree, everything red. Strong and vibrant. Like this window display with it's gift ideas. I saw it and snapped a shot. Completely attracted and drawn in.
And what a year 2007 has been. We're just days away to saying goodbye. So much good and yet the bad headlines the papers. Personally, I've achieved enough to keep me going another few years. Socially, I want to somehow bring some peace to our shaken nation. Lack of trust, a failing judiciary and racial unrest ever more prominent in our lives. Every small movement sends a red alert to the authorities and the shields, tear-gas and acid-filled water cannons appear in the middle of the city. Innocent are harmed.
I stand back and wish for love. Red is a beautiful colour. Let's not abuse it and waste it on warning signals.
