It was difficult living on the farm, being cutt-off from other people when there was a blinding snow storm for days. Marion felt the numbing loneliness deeply and her husband James only amplified her sense of isolation.
They were still a relatively young couple but James made her feel as if she were old, dull, and boring. He barely acknowledged Marion except when he wanted food. He hadn’t actually conversed with Marion for what felt like years.
She observed as James lived alone in his head, always ignoring her attempts to talk. As the harsh winds and snow isolated them in the farmhouse, James isolated Marion in their marriage.
When the blizzard ended, Marion had had enough. She peered at James one last time and left. She drove to the nearest city and caught a flight home.
Colour makes us see the world in a visibly vibrant and outstanding way. Like the Wizard of Oz, when Dorothy wakes up in munchkin land. color wakes us up and makes us realize what we are truly not seeing,
These watermelon pieces are bright and have vivacious color in comparison to the dull background. They stand out because they are luscious, edible, and such a bright pink/red. The missing vibrancy in a dull world.
