It used to be that orange and rust and goldenrod were top of mind October colors and atop seasonal blog pages like this. That's not the case any longer. October is a pink month. For the past week and the three weeks to follow, we'll bear witness to athletes donning pink cleats and caps, women with pink extensions, and children wearing pink tshirts to school. Pink has ever-increasing, expected presence on the autumn palette.
I love the color pink and the inspiration and impact of its message. And yet, my thoughts today are not monochromatic. Rather, I think there is something important we can learn from pink's evolution as a primary fall color.
