If at First You Don’t Succeed, Eat a Hot Fudge Sundae

There is something about an ice cream sundae that shines with beauty. 

I wanted to play.  What if the light was a different color? Or was really strong, or barely existent?

Merriem-Webster defines light as “something that makes vision possible.” 

 We see things in tinted lights all the time.   Each light makes vision possible, but maybe they evoke different moods?  Do you ever think about what color the light is that you are looking with?   Sometimes the light is more yellow, or blue, or green.  Sometimes things are very much in shadow, and sometimes brighter light illuminates a particular area or whites out the brightest spots completely.  If you change the location of the source of light, things look entirely different–with different shadows cast, different shapes emphasized.   Increasing the contrast of the light, makes the white as striking and obvious as the dark, with less shadows in between.  Sometimes I like to look at a number of possible light colors and options next to each other.

This reminded me of possibilities, of looking at things in a different light.

Oh possibilities….how pretty you are. 

A quote popped up when my mom finished a game of Mahjong.  It read:  If at first you don’t succeed, redefine success.”    If at first I don’t succeed, I hope there is a hot fudge sundae around to remind me of possibilities.
