Dog Days. Are they over?
Well, depends on what you think of when you say that.
The dog days are frequently referencing the hottest days of summer. The days when not much is happening, lazy days of summer, etc. (source)
Other interpretations say that dog days are about nothing happening…progress stagnating.
And the horses coming in? That could be about things moving forward, 'getting a move one'. The horse is about power, wealth, victory. It’s about success. (source)
Florence and the Machine interpreted their song quite colorfully back in 2008.
And then in 2010, came out with this less colorful one, more white with splashes of color.
Though hubby disagrees with me on the meaning of dog days, I am sticking with my interpretation of this song:
The stagnant times are done, things are about to get going again.
Maybe this is what makes me like the more colorful version of the video. And I am ready to be hit, like a train on a track.

How we interpret, and what views we enjoy depends so much on our current perspective.
Which do you prefer right now?
Extremely colorful or more white-washed?
And why do you think that is??
