Green, everywhere.

I am on a vacation with my friends to Smoky mountains, Tenesse.  .The whole road trip  took 11 hours  from my place to the destination. Disappointment hit me when I thought I would not be able to make up to Day 6 post of Write tribe festival as I had limited access to network in any way. Without giving in, I am glad I found some time before I retired to bed. I pulled my phone after my dinner and chose to write few lines on a simple prompt, color. Things I saw in a particular color all through my trip today. Green it is.
  • Today , as I paddle through the white waters while I raft, I see the scene of nature bordered with lofty  green trees, turning it picture perfect. Green for prosperity.
  • Co-incidence,  shades of green were common on the dresses myself and my husband wore today.Green for ability to nurture ourselves and others unconditionally.
  • The drive was an awesome experience and seemed like a  visual treat. The fun on wheels was laid on a lush green mat for hundreds of miles at a stretch. We watched green and only green all around the journey for about 10 hours. Green for inviting good judgement.
  •  We halted for a coffee break in the evening. It was my favourite, starbucks. A topless mermaid in green on the coffee cup is another entry to my green list today.
  • A lettuce-spinarch salad for my evening snack
  • The Green lunch plate to serve my chicken-cheese pasta at  Olive gardens .
  • (Oh, don’t be surprised most of it relates to food in many ways.:-P)
  • My Tennis racquet I played today had a black frame with green rubber grip.
  • The snooker board.( in Green ofcourse)
  • Green in every shade has rejoiced me  and made every moment of my day today.
