dear reader,

i have one word for you and one word only: blue. no, it isn’t just the name of the adorable and incredibly intuitive dog on blue’s clues. it is a mood, a type of jeans, my favorite color, a berry. we can all strive to be blue: flexible, honest, loyal. blue is a way of life. it is SO MUCH MORE than a color. ode to blue! but most importantly, it’s the color of the sky! wait- shouldn’t you be outside now?

alas, here is a summary taken from the inside of what we done did in the outside:
