Project Athena - Day 187 (roygbiv - y)

Round & Round & Round's a color with which I have a love/hate relationship. Some days, I am drawn to its brilliance and intensity. Other days, it literally give me a headache. Sometimes it holds an energy of enlightenment and other times I feel like it is screaming "coward!". If a room is painted yellow, I can feel cheery and happy but when I see a yellow vehicle, I think about deceit and betrayal. It can jolt me promptly into alertness and it can make me feel overwhelmed with toxicity. It is the color of the third chakra, the solar plexus. I suspect that when I am not living in my full power, that is when yellow feels repulsive to me.

This sign caught my attention today as I drove through some of the newest roundabouts in Loveland. I vote we rename our city Round-About-Town. Our city planners are very enthusiastic about these special circular traffic junctions.

I am not opposed to roundabouts as a means of flowing traffic, although I do think some folks don't quite get the hang of them. Now, when I find myself stuck in a roundabout of life, metaphorically speaking, that is a different story. Do you know what I am talking about...Those situations you manage to get yourself into without creating a collision but somehow you can't get yourself to the exit. I feel like this cold I've contracted is a roundabout virus. Every time I start to feel better and think I am going to exit, it pulls me back in and just keeps going and going and going......
