Black Fades To Gray

“The years teach much which the days never knew.”

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

When you are angry or depressed, the world looks black.

Depression-loss of loved one

But hard as it is*, try to be patient. Get a good night’s sleep. Change your brain chemistry with exercise. Give it time. Black eventually fades to gray.

Just like those old favorite black jeans which are now gray. Not any old gray, but a gray full of memories – of good times, of hard times, of black times, of light times. It’s a gray that knew black, but now knows more. Gray looks different than black.

Maybe that’s why the world looks different after we turn gray.

Yesterday’s gift of time … Brought our martial arts instructor a small gift for his birthday.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
