Today I am wearing grey, on grey, on grey, on grey, with a fancy orange scarf.

It is my ode to Corporate America.

I like your decor here, Corporate America.

The grey inspires me.

It reminds me to make my own happiness.

And that the world is more than the bleakness here.

We are artists, who create happiness out of sadness and in the midst of the bleak days.

Some choose to not participate, or even wallow in their bleakness.

I chose to not be weighed down by it, but learn how to embrace it, and and roll with it.

I sometimes wonder if it will overtake me.

I feel weighed down by the grey. Like it will consume my very being.

My legs hurt, my head is heavy, my shoulders are like bowling balls.

It is a sea of nothingness at times with no way through.

Thank goodness for orange. It always wins.

    Little boxes on the hillside
    Little boxes made of ticky tacky
    Little boxes on the hillside
    Little boxes all the same

    There's a pink one and a green one
    And a blue one and a yellow one
    And they're all made out of ticky tacky
    And they all look just the same

    And the people in the houses
    All went to the university
    Where they were put in boxes
    And they came out all the same

    And there's doctors and lawyers
    And business executives
    And they're all made out of ticky tacky
    And they all look just the same

    And they all play on the golf course
    And drink their martinis dry
    And they all have pretty children
    And the children go to school

    And the children go to summer camp
    And then to the university
    Where they are put in boxes
    And they come out all the same

    And the boys go into business
    And marry and raise a family
    In boxes made of ticky tacky
    And they all look just the same

    There's a pink one and a green one
    And a blue one and a yellow one
    And they're all made out of ticky tacky
    And they all look just the same
