There is just something special about putting on a tie dye shirt. It changes your whole mood and makes everything just a little more. . . groovy. Sometimes it is good to get out of the funk and change your clothes to brighten your mood. That is what tie dye does for me.
Last time I was up in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, I came across a little cinder block building painted bright yellow and noticed that they had some tie dye shirts hanging on a clothesline outside. I stopped to take a look and found out that the store is called Milky Wave Tie Dye, run by a sweet lady named Helen and her son, Laz.
They had huge selection of clothes for all shapes and sizes, in about a dozen recognizable patterns with different brilliant colors. i had a hard time making up my mind which ones to get, and ended up spending about $100 to get several shirts for myself and one for my sister.
Next time I am up that way I plan to stop by again and buy a few more tie dye shirts. When I wear them around town I always get noticed and hear a lot of compliments on the patterns and bright colors. And we can always use a little more groovy in our lives.
