These colors. And the way the rain intensifies them. I don't know if everyone feels like this, but I have physical responses to certain colors. It's hard to put into words, but some colors make my heart feel like it's opening/expanding and then bring a warmth to my neck and make my face feel like I walked through a spiderweb, and puts me in a state of pure bliss. It can be overwhelming and I have to stop what I'm doing and just let it happen. Strange. The colors of sandstone in the desert Southwest, the inside of butternut squash, and glowing coals are some examples. And now wet maple leaves on the patio in the overcast light. Perfection.
