250. Colour 

Life is what you make it, I thought, as I passed this downtown back alley in Toronto. One dominant side of my mind notes the grime, filth and likely dirty dealings that have painted this alleys dank history. The other, more suppressed side, notices the beauty of the bright colours that adorn its walls. The alley, however I perceive it, continues to simply be. This is a stark reminder that all our emotion is ultimately perceived, and that we should ensure we focus our lenses to look at life positively. I wrote this haiku to highlight this. 

One side, all is death 

On the other, see the joy

This always our choice.
