When my five-year-old grandson draws a picture with a boat, he makes the water blue, of course, in front of green hills. So what color is this water that Pete Seeger‘s famous Clearwater sails through? And the hills?

And what color is juxtaposed with this happy springtime-brown muskrat?

Surely the Hudson’d be blue if seen cradling this tug delivering a fuel barge up to Warex.

Guess I’m not going to see this blue. Yet if the kid were drawing the boat floating in brown, I’d be disturbed, especially if he explained  “No, grandpa, it’s ecru.”  Looks like my expectation will have to adjust, especially after heavy rains.  So now it’s brown like the color of water, like the color of earth.  Happy earth day every day.
