Pale

In playing with this word, I have updated Pallid, and took a beautiful journey through “fallow” (which can be a color!!!) and “pullous” (related to Vedic Sanskrit “Palita” – grey-haired – which would make a lovely pseudonym, don’t you think? – so now I need a secret double life just so I can call myself Palita). What a lovely morning!
