52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Shuttle Gray

This color reminded me of a song I sang in a choral group many years ago. I remember the gray, sad feeling it gave me but at the same time I luxuriated in its deep harmonies and beauty. And it makes you feel gray without ever using the word once.


Houston Bright (b. 1916)

Clouds hang heavy above the plain
They bring the smell of a summer rain,
And my heart, it is heavy too,
And my spirits are heavy too.
(See how the rains do pour as if forevermore.)

Clouds drift low in a shadowed spell
They bring the memory of one farewell,
When a spirit from life withdrew,
When the soul of my love withdrew.
(See how the rains do pour as if forevermore.)

Raindrops fall from a sodden sky
They drum a querulous lullaby
As in memory of one who sleeps,
As if crooning to one who sleeps.
(See how the rains do pour as if forevermore.)

I am not able to embed it, but there is a lovely version HERE, if you want to hear it.

So this color suited my mellow ponderings. After I saw the color for this week I headed over to the Designer Circle and found this perfect mesh dress from Ibizarre. Dress, check. And then I saw the amazing grouping of gray-toned shoes that Pixieplumb Flanagan put out for the color challenge this week. What an awesome idea! I very quickly found something perfect! Shoes, check!
