What is it about the colour red? It provokes such strong reactions in us. We even have an expression, "To see red!" where we use the colour to show our anger. Then we like to think of red as the colour of love, of passion. What would a night-club be without red?
Here in Georgia, one often paddles between the red banks of rivers and lakes. The red clay is nearly everywhere you go. You even get to take it home once you leave. The fine red clay stains your feet, your clothes, your neoprene, everything! Georgia never leaves you! Like a good lover, she stays close and stays long!
Oh yeah, that stuff can be tough to wash off!
Perhaps I should have titled my piece, 'Georgia Tatoo'!
