I Will Wear Purple

This morning when I got dressed the outdoor temperature was in the teens so I put on my mother's Norwegian sweater with my black skirt and black tights. This seemed a little monochromatic, though, so I dug through my closet for something to cut through the somber tones and found a purple silk scarf.

"Really?" I thought to myself. "A purple silk scarf? That coordinates with exactly nothing in the rest of my outfit?"

And clear as day I heard my mother's laugh.

"Sure! Why not?" she was asking.

Today I'm enjoying Be Kind to Me day and my purple scarf that reminds me of her.
