Word Ghosts and the color of the day

“People observe the colors of a day only at its  beginnings and its ends, but to me it’s quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment. A single hour can consist with thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spat blues. Murky darkness. In my line of work, I made it a point to notice them.”

Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
