Living EnChroma

When the sun sets each evening, do you drink in the colors with delight?  Or are you just too weary with the workaday world to even notice?

When Aaron Williams-Mele recently received a pair of EnChroma glasses for his birthday, he couldn’t help but notice.  Suddenly, his world went from shades of gray to living color. explains that EnChroma lenses for the colorblind “use filters to kind of clean up the signals that go to the cone cells in your eyes that absorb red and green.”

A YouTube video captured Williams-Mele’s expression as he viewed a Norfolk, Virginia sunset in all its colorful glory for the first time.  “Needless to say, it was a pretty emotional experience,” he later wrote.

It is said that if sunset only presented itself once in a person’s lifetime, it would be an unforgettable event.  With mindfulness, each and every sunset could be viewed with great appreciation.  Certainly, that seems worth the meditative effort.
