Red Invictus

My favourite color is red. It is the color that never surrenders, the color that never gives up and is never defeated. It is the color that keeps going, despite everything. Its energy is vibrant, always fresh. It is the opposite of everything that is stagnant or passive or cold.

For some days I look at a rose in the garden. It’s November and everything is more or less dead or dying by now. Yet, the rose is defiant and dared to bloom at this time of the year. I discovered it some days ago. The nights are closer to zero degrees here in the mountains but no question to give up for the rose. Just like it, in the coldest times, life will flourish.
