Vibrant in Winter

Vibrant is the theme of this week’s WordPress photo challenge. What could be more welcome on a cold, gray winter day than pops of color in the landscape? After teaching my Friday morning class today, having just seen “vibrant” as the theme, I saw the colorful tents on campus lined up for Greek week activities.

A bright pink tent beckons vibrant college students to explore leisure activities on campus.

Seeing these bright pink colors against the drab, gray backdrop of the university campus in its winter glory really lifted my spirits. Even on a dreary Friday morning, students still engage, chat and hurry to classes eager to be done for the day.

One definition of vibrant is “pulsating with life, vigor, or activity.”

But vibrancy goes a step further beyond the visual.  Students also have the opportunity to sign up for clubs and other campus activities to keep up their vibrant leisure lifestyle when done with classes and homework.

This photo is also submitted for Jennifer Nicole Wells Color Your World challenge “Cotton Candy.”

Even in my own front yard, there is a hint of vibrancy. I was surprised a few days ago to see my cute paper-whites blooming!

  2. Color is a very welcome site in winter. We got a lot of snow this week so things are very white. A little girl walking home from school wearing a bright pink jacket jumped out at me- like your greek week tent it was a pop of color that made me smile.
