“You know, your Granddad asked me a very interesting question. He asked ‘What do you think God’s favorite color is?’”
I thought about it, and replied, “Blue.”
“That’s a very good answer . . . The sky is blue, the ocean is blue. But he had a different answer: green.”
I thought about it; my favorite color is green, too. It is so easy on our eyes that artists traditionally gazed at something green during breaks, to rest their eyes, to prevent eyestrain. It is the primary color of life.
Let’s keep the green patches that we have left. Let’s venerate the last few sacred wild spaces. Let’s leave the empty lots and forests, overrunning with green. So that we still have somewhere to soothe our eyes. So we can live.
