There are other colors blooming now, but pink is totally in season, in the Garden of my Heart, and in the hope for the World. Just like us, even all pinks are not the same.

Pink and green together make Love. Source made the pink and green out of the same Stuff that everything else is made of.

Stir green and pink paint together and it makes a funky brown; a superficial illusion. In love, everything,  though still part of everything else, maintains it’s individual integrity. Separateness can only work properly in a state of Togetherness. I love a good oxymoron, and feel the same way about mentally challenged beasts of burden.
