Grey, in between seasons, sometimes wet and rainy, sometimes just gray. And that is okay.
It is learning to be able to live in between seasons that is super important.
There are some very pertinent songs that are very strong here. All genres and even Spanish songs.
Hope this is helpful and reaches someone who needs it!
