Pallette For A Palate

Melon in the kitchen. Bran Muffin in the dining room. Peanut Butter in the bathroom. Therefore, it was a great disappointment when the living room went to Martinique Morn.

But, you say, did you consider Martinique Dawn? Yes. But, even the most saturated palette in Fort-de-France could barely tell the difference.

No. What was sad was the abandonment of the food theme. Why not stick with Celery? In the right light, a Fennel would also have satisfied. Or, Baked Brie - certainment. Why not Glazed Pears with a trim of Vanilla Brandy? Or, for that matter, Horseradish -- though, this is merely a condiment.

True, we'd almost need a gourmand to advise us, instead of the woman they pulled from Hardware to mix the paint. (Did she know the difference between a claw and ball peen? Hard to tell. But neither would be the thing to apply to a Mosaic Glass.)

Maybe I should drop the whole food thing. Just roll a Tobacco. Indoors! Think of the hue it would stir. Or, rather, lounge in a Spring Meadow, aye the Green Pastures. Or, something chic -- a Cafe Clair alongside a Brunette sporting Pearls & Lace -- by all means. Or, go further and slap up a Panacea. Mount the ladder for Cloud Nine.

Or, maybe draw on my own color challenges to produce new, alchemic colors: Barking Dog, Vengeance, Rotted Stump.

No. Food and fruit are the things. We should do the living in Olive.

"A spreading olive tree, goodly to behold."
