"October medicine," 5 x 7 watercolor card
It's a a gloomy day, in a gloomy year. Today's cold seems to seep in, mirroring a year and a season of disease, violent racism and the politics of intolerance.
My mood, our mood, our spirits, our mental health, need more than a medical vaccine. So while this late October day is gloomy, I'm so thankful for what October does best.
Brilliant foliage brings color and brightness into the world, at least in the upper northern latitudes. It's no wonder the month is a favorite, of scenery, of memories, of fun.
So today's watercolor greeting card is just that, a vaccine for my moping mood.
