"Mere color, unspoiled by meaning and unallied with definite form,
can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways."
As a rule, I am not particularly fond of palm trees. They are messy, and common, and don't have a lot of character going on, but for some reason this one was pleasing to the eye. Maybe it was the slant of the sun, or the blue mood I was in, which tends to make everything look different, I don't know why, it just caught my imagination, and I had a hard time looking away.
