A Duck Named Teal
Apparently the color is named after a duck. The common teal, a duck who's eyes are rimmed with the color, would love my basement right now. As you've heard on the news, New England is a float. My basement at midnight last night had 14 inches as we began to set up the sump pump we'd scrambled for all day. The waterfall down the street, with the 15 foot drop, doesn't fall. It's one gigantic river. I'm skimping on the posts this week but find more of the beloved color squares of Josef Albers very soothing this am. Little windows of it's going to be ok. Some tea and teal will get me up and going again.
