Dear Colleagues

In the northern hemisphere, May is the month which usually heralds spring if it hasn’t already shown its face. While in South Africa we don’t have spring flowers, we can enjoy the autumnal leaves and bulbs.

Focus this month on COLOURS – talk about them (e.g. how do different colours influence your mood), or write about them (e.g. poetry writing, or a creative piece entitled The Colours of the garden/forest/mountains/etc. of my Mind.)

We recommend you take a look at Macrat’s Theme Pack for Colours for more inspiration!
