BLURB

Somewhere between black and white there are a whole plethora of colors, a world to be explored, a vast techno display of diversity. But somehow, somewhy you always go for plain old grey. Perhaps there is something safe and secure in the dreariness of grey. It doesn’t threaten you, it just serves as a bleak reminder of nothing much, the one true face of misery. Once you’ve succumbed to its darkened ways, it’s hard to release yourself, to undo its dulcet tones, to embody the idea of something brighter. It is the symbol of uniformity, of silence, the one that people feel the need to adorn with their scrawl. It is the intermediate point, the color that isn’t really a color, the wolf in dreary sheep’s clothing. Yes, never underestimate the power of grey.
