Judith's Artsy Essay

Of All The Myriad Colors In The Rainbow........



Tell us what your favorite color is, through poetry or prose. Tell us the story of how you came to love that color, what luscious items are the same color, which place you go to in your mind when you spy that color, or how that color makes you FEEL.
