Would You Rather: RaChil at The Cwafty Blog
This is RaChil. She's a crafter filled with quirk and a jack of all trades, always eager to learn a new skill. She organizes hosts around the world for a flat-Stanley-esque creature, Venture the traveling gnome, and goes on awesome art adventures. This is what we asked her:
Q: Would you rather be unable to look up at the sky or see everything in black and white?
A: To be honest this one is sort of easy for me. I like sunsets, clouds, stars and everything the sky has to offer really, but I would much rather see in color than black and white forever.So I personally would sacrifice my sky privilege for my seeing in color privilege.
I'm an artist so color plays a giant role in my life. I use color daily in my work and regular life. Purple in specific is very important to me and I like to surround myself with purple things. My life would be much sadder if I could not identify the color purple but only saw in black and white.
Color brightens my day, I like seeing strange or rare colors in my daily life for example in someone outfit I pass on a street or a plant I see while on a walk. I like to have discussions with other artistically minded people about what the exact color something is and what the appropriate name for that shade is, that's a great time to me.
On the other hand if I could look at the sky but everything was in black and white I wouldn't be enjoying the true splendor of the sky. A sunset isn't the same in black and white, neither is a good dark-purple clouded night. To get Shakespearean, T'would be better to never place mine eyes on such beauty if by seeing, I muddied the water.
I would wear an extra long visor my whole life never to see the sky if it meant I could retain the ability to see in color.
