A color without color in my travels

A color without color in my travels

It is interesting that the color white, which is an achromatic color meaning that it is a color without a color shines so vibrantly throughout the world.  White is  composed of a mixture of all frequencies of the light of the visible spectrum. It can be so plain yet so intoxicating in our architecture.  White often reminds me of vanilla ice cream which i don’t care for unless it is lemon ice or vanilla bean. I like vanilla when it has a bit of kick or sourness. The same is true when I encounter white columns in my travels. I suppose, appropriately enough, white is often worn by pilgrims-those seeking enlightenment and guidance.  As a New Yorker, as a rule, I do not wear white. Plus, white is not very slimming. I prefer my clothes dark but my coffee light.  White, a color without a color. How odd in its absence.
