Get in the front of the line to race. Feel the butterflies fly within and throughout your whole body. Appreciate the adrenaline rushing through your pulsing veins. Hear the words, “Go.” Look from side to side, and then decide to jog since everyone else is waiting on you to start. Laugh at the thought. Breathe in and out. Anticipate the powder of swirling colors. Yell at your friends in a fun, loud, and encouraging way to keep going. Love the blue, green, pink, orange, and yellow swatches of paint splattered across your face and clothes. Immerse yourself in colorful energy. Hug your friends to share some of the warmth of colors with them. Hug your friends to reciprocate that vibrancy through the colors on your skin, too. Love and be loved in a race all about loving all identities and communities.
p.s. Today, I immersed myself in so many colors with people that give my life a little more color, a little more vibrancy, and a lot more warmth. Happy Sunday Fun Day! Also, here’s to the LGBT community! You all matter, tons! 💘 #npsocial #colorrun2016 #lit 😍
