It colors everything

We have this expression in English; "it colors everything".
Environment, circumstances, relationships,physical and emotional health, belief systems or spirituality, and perhaps something else I forgot to name, make up the "it" that colors everything.

In many Traditional Icon schools, color is considered to have the same substance as words: indeed each color has its own value and meaning. Reading "The Tree of Life" by the colors I chose: Brown is the color of the bare earth, and all that is transient and perishable. Green is the color of natural, living things. Blue indicates the infinity of the sky and is the symbol of another everlasting world. White is the symbol of the heavenly realm and God's divine light.

What is coloring your world these days?
