The Color Orange

Like every other color, the color orange has its defenders and its detractors. I am mostly in the detractor camp. Orange is largely intolerable. It's such a bossy color, and doesn't play nicely with others. It is the color of hunting. It is the color of traffic cones and safety vests.  And, although it is luscious and beautiful in its lone natural setting, the fall forest, that orange is only a hop, skip, and a jump from the dead browns of early December, and by then, of course, you're in the thick of winter.

But when you consider that orange is part of the natural order of things, and that the cleansing warmth of spring and summer will come again (when I'll be hoping for cooler days).
