Curiously, the NYT usually arrives wrapped in bright yellow here, even though in New Jersey and Los Angeles it invariably turns up shrouded in blue. I have plans - not this coming academic year, but the one after - to teach some kind of undergraduate course on Color, and sometime soon - the fall? - I shall experiment with taking a color a week as the basis for images/writing here. I'll just note, in passing, therefore, the coincidence of bright yellow two days running. I don't even much like yellow.

This is, of course, deliberately, another example of the daily aspect of the everyday (what can be more daily than a daily newspaper?) defamiliarized, or at least beautified, by drops of dew.
