Are you partial to green as I am?
I used to be such a blue person, but lately, my closet seems to be filled with an assortment of greens. I am also partial to strength. I take my coffee more steeped than dripped and well-- okay, I like to even out its flavor with a bit of cinnamon-dashed-cream.
It's a good thing I like strong and green stuff. Look at all the options available to folk like me. I won't bore you with my list. There is money for certain, and then aged oaks harboring green acorns to sprout more oak trees; and then, there is the magic of spinach.
I grew up watching Popeye quick-press open his always handy can of Spinach. Do you remember those cartoons? His arch rival Brutto could whip the near daylight out of Popeye until that can of strong spinach opened; and Popeye poured its green stuff down his throat.
Perhaps seeing so many of the cartoons, I began to equate spinach not only with its rich color, but with its ability to strengthen the human spirit as well. More, more, more of that great strength giver I still say pretty often during the week.
The human spirit, admittedly can be strengthened by life's delicacies other than Spinach. Our sensitive souls can be revitalized by stuff other than those colored green. The essential point here is that we recognize our unique sources of renewal and refresh ourselves with them as often as necessary. Never mind the color of their wrappings so long as those sources, like my Spinach, are health-filled and what we relish.
Just a break from my usual seriousness. See you back here tomorrow for our next great topic worthy of our examination. Stay strong and thrive.
