This morning I feel blue—not in the depressive sense but in terms of possibilities. I absolutely love the color because it speaks to me of open sky.
I have been a blue lover for a very long time. While living overseas in Amsterdam, Holland, I had the benefit of some wonderful friends labeled “The Dream Team” because we all had vivid dreams. We would get together to discuss our dreams and pray for each other. One of these wonderful women gave me a blue scarf as a reminder of “heavenly revelation.” I still have that blue scarf twenty-years later as a reminder of possibilities.
When life gets rough, I look for blue. With blue, your dreams come true!
Wearing different colors expresses my moods. I may try on different identities like clothes hanging on a line, but blue puts a bit of mystical in the mix. Call me crazy but this even extends to earrings worn for the day.
When I feel Bohemian, my dangles with blue moons give a little extra skip to my step.
While creating the earlier post, “I Feel Pink,” I noticed all the “blue” in my Argentina and Uruguay pictures.
Josiah so enjoys South American culture because he says that people there celebrate life. As he put it, “They don’t live to work but work to live.” I would greatly benefit from remembering his insight more often!
The South American people’s passion for family, friends, and fun reverberates through the colors used for buildings and accents.
So today, with the help of South American photos, I share my passion for blue with you in hopes of brightening your day.
Yes, thinking in colors is definitely a part of my creative life and therefore a must for my blogging identity!
So next time you are feeling blue, whether in the heartsick or heavenly possibility mode, try seeing blue all around you and I guarantee you will smile once again.
