Five Minute Friday: Red

The charge is simple. Spend five minutes writing about the prompt that is posted on Lisa Jo Baker's blog. The writing should be unscripted, unedited, and real.  In effort to center my heart and brain for the work day and weekend ahead, I decided to participate in Five Minute Friday today. Confession: the backspace key is part of my typing subconscious, so this bit is subconsciously edited.

Red is one of my favorite colors. To me it represents love, passion, anger, fiery spirit, and outward strength. 

I also associate it with some of my favorite foods: acidic tomatoes bursting with almost too ripe intensity, juicy fresh picked strawberries signaling the flush of summer fruits yet to come.

I wear red on days that I seek warmth and energy all rolled into one.

Red is the color of my son’s bike. It’s a deep red, a grounded red, a red that gives him confidence, gives him weight to keep tires on the ground and feet on pedals, a red that makes him go fast and challenge himself to zoom down grassy hills with mountain bike racer speed.
