Wonderful Shades

Another working week has passed. Our life here was good and peaceful, without any eventful thing or very bad news occuring (thank God). I was watching a Jody Foster's movie awhile ago, "The Brave One" - when one scene at the start of the movie caught my attention and imagine how dull life would be if we only saw things in black and white. She was on the phone with her lover (they're supposed to be getting married) telling him how their invite would look like, him saying that it will be a nice cream invite and Jody Foster corrected him that it's not cream but vanilla.

Isn't that amazing how we (Women), yes, only us!... know the difference between off-white, beige, cream, vanilla, ivory and champagne? It's a gift i think that men will never understand about us.

I think it is our greater sensitivity that enables us to find magic within the ordinary. Or maybe it's our sense of style (whatever it is) and innate creativity. Or it could be that we know how much more pleasure we can get in having three colorful purses, shoes and sweaters, instead of just one white one! so womanly! - - - anyone not guilty on this? (^^;) lol

Whatever it is, it only means one thing. Never ever under estimate a woman's creativity, ability and sensitivity. It is with all these that makes us an amazing human being!

(You know it's already the start of the rainy season [梅雨入り] here in Japan, when you see this 'Ajisai-あじさい' flowers blooming everywhere in the country. My Aunt back home said, we call this flower 'Milflores' in the Philippines, or million a bundle, how exotic! Pic. was taken by me, June 8, 2011 from our garden.)
