Not only is it the color of the sky, certain bodies of water, and a crayon choice but a popular color around my house. I went looking and this is what I found: flip-flops, hangers, towels, (blankets, bathrobe, books, ink pens, and memory cards), tool kit, bowl, candle, reusable bag, shorts, soap dish, lotion bottle, hand-cookie cutter, double-sided duct tape, cup, flash light, and dust pan.
Blue is: the color of ‘cool’ in Lightroom, the feeling my dogs get when I leave without them, the color of batteries, an envelope, a CD with photos, my jeans, the color of my monitors light when on, and the blueberries in my cereal this morning. It is the color of my first car, a 1976 Chevy Nova, and the hue of my husband’s eyes that match his uniform. Blue is the color of birds, whales, and frogs.
Blue is also associated with different mediums of art, varying sports leagues, a range of religions, symbols of political parties, and one of the many color lights displayed during the holiday season. Blue can be a brand, can describe royalty, be the color scheme of a baby boy or the color of a little pill that works wonders for some. Blue is a popular color in nature, history, and our ever consuming economy. What does blue mean to you?
I’ll take that as a compliment. He sang it the best.
Blue Velvet by Bobby Vinton reminds me of you.
