Fall Color Blindness

But I’m color blind. That can mean many things, but in my case it means that I can see most colors just fine, but some blend together in ways that seem strange to most people. For example, as a child I never understood why purple was its own color. It just looks dark blue to me. And many shades of green and red blend together in my eyes. Perhaps the contrasts are not as distinct for me, so while I can see color just fine, I don’t possess the correct vocabulary for colors because I can’t test those words against reality. The descriptions above of the colors of fall are probably true for two reasons, the first being that I’ve learned from our culture what fall is supposed to look like, and the other being that fall colors are super dramatic and apparent even to my myopic vision.
