List | Last

Colors had never been so bright before now.

You realize that, all along, you’d been blinded to the vibrancy of the hues in sunsets. You hadn’t noticed how much the forest shimmered in shades of shocking green. Mountains melted into soft blues and grays, bleeding into the rivers below. Nature became utterly overwhelming.
