Day 1 SOLC 20
The prosaic act of dipping a sponge into some shoe polish this morning brought me my first slice for this month! Probably slightly dates me too, as I’m not sure who polishes their shoes these days even if they are leather?! This exact shade of red took me a while to track down in the shops, which is probably an indication that shoe polish is not in great demand these days.
Usually I dab it on in a hurry as I’m always midrush to do something else and polishing shoes is a bit of a chore after all.
But today was a sunny Sunday morning. As I scooped out a tiny dip of polish, I noticed the name morello cherry. And just like that I was melted into a world of colour that filled me with pleasure.
A scoop of joy; a delicious drippy mouthful of juice; the deep sheen on those delicate little spheres of fruit!
I took a quick look at some exotic colours on Google and came up with some dreamfilled ones, like sassy grass pearl, bahama blue and neon carrot!
Now my shoes are shining and my mind is alight with waterfalls of colour!
