I would have left the blue in. I like "middle grey blue" sometimes for stuff
like this. Which I do do. You know the birdies on the wires. When the sun
goes down sometimes that's about all that's left.

ESTRAGON: I remember the maps of the Holy Land. Coloured they were. Very
pretty. The Dead Sea was pale blue. The very look of it made me thirsty.
That's where we'll go, I used to say, that's where we'll go for our
honeymoon. We'll swim. We'll be happy.
