Harmony Brightness

Yesterday was Harmony Day--the international day for racial tolerance. Orange is the colour of Harmony Day--don't ask me why, but Orange it is. The Neighbourhood House has been celebrating all week with orange banners, clothing and food. I have one orange scarf in my wardrobe--bought last year for just this occasion. Yesterday was a hot day, and I didn't want to wear my scarf again. I picked out these cute little earings from a shop in Carlton:
They are light and bright and fun to wear. Now I have two items of orange for Harmony. Wearing orange earings is a tiny stretch for me. I hope it will remind me to notice and overcome some of the little--and not so little--prejudices I have.
