Peace… what is peace?! Have you ever read a novel before, consisting of no conflict or climax? This probably not true, because authors only write novels that would sell, and make them money.

Colors speak a hundred thousand thoughts and create a story of peace and anger. They make up this magnum opus; one great work. Free of prejudice, restrictions, limitations. A free mind expressed past the realm of reason and convention, through colors. Colors that are bright like the day, dark like nightfall. Colors that are quiet..
