Against Stereotype

Yellow – Yellow Yellow

Can you even see it? I’m not writing about sunny or cheerful yellow.

Think lemon – as in sour. Or not assembled properly. The namesake of Lemon Laws.

Or perhaps a coward comes to mind. You know the movie character – the old Western where the hero calls the villian a yellow-bellied, yellow-livered, coward with a yellow streak down his back so wide nothing else is left.

Not all is lost. We can make a little lemonade – add sugar and water and optimism.

On a recent October walk I happened across a yard resident wearing yellow tall and proud. Not dull brown or flashing orange red for this stately tree. A simple yellow will do. Nothing to be ashamed of in this rainbow color at all.

Yellow and Proud
