It takes a LOT of a tint to color white. White is a color. Adding to it can change the white, but it took all I had. I was really surprised at how hard it was to make a bright yellow. Watching the colors swirl together reminded me of emotions. (sort of a 60's motif, the swirling colors and emotion!) Or vibes, if you will.
Stirring ourselves into the mix of life is not always easy. I've noticed this often this summer. Pulling myself into being cheerful or upbeat is so hard at times. I'm fortunate I can get away for a few hours every so often. I can see the emotions of others around me creating streaks as I attempt to smooth stuff around me. I am often surprised to discover I've managed to completely miss things and the relationships haven't changed a bit. I'm sure I'm not doing things properly, I can only do the best I can.
As I applied the paint to the tires I was coating, I noticed a lot of streaks. Faint streaks of less yellow or more yellow. The brighter color had permeated the white, for the most part. To incorporate it takes more work than anticipated. I stopped and stirred a bit more and slopped on another layer. Eventually, the coverage was similar all across the tread. From a distance, it looks pretty darn good! I am certain they'll do what they are supposed to. Marking the place for no parking and driving.
That is the most important part. Remembering the mix of the tint doesn't always matter. Getting the job done efficiently does. It does frustrate me, though. I prefer to do things so they are practically perfect in every way. Mary Poppins, I am not! I hope my tint on the time i'm home, the summer so far, and the people I'm around is efficient. I hope I am helpful and bringing good. We'll see!
