Frederick, in Leo Lionni's book by that name, is a small field mouse. The other mice around him are busy gathering corn and nuts and other good things for winter. When they see Frederick sitting there, staring at the meadow, they ask what he is doing.
"I gather colors," answered Frederick simply, "For winter is gray."
Here, to spice up winter grayness, are some cornucopias of color, to top off our color celebration week.
"Instructions for living a life:
Tell about it."

I've taken on a prayer practice of looking for the moments of light in each day, whether actual or metaphorical, and then writing or posting photos of what I find.
