I have a thing for the color blue.
I love all shades of blue: powder, aquamarine, turquoise, cobalt, electric, midnight, azure, royal, Prussian, sky, ice, baby, Tiffany’s, ultramarine, indigo, navy, steel, slate, cerulean…
Those colors all sound so sexy, so alive to me!
There is a passage in one of Oliver Sacks’ books where he describes the fantastic indigo blue he experienced during an acid trip in his younger years. I don’t personally know anything about acid trips (scout’s honor) but I love, love, love blue. The way he speaks about the color… I feel that when I see blue.
My absolute favorite shade is a deep, rich cobalt, like what you see in the stained glass here from Rouen Cathedral in France. It is also the color of the sky just before sunlight peeks up over the horizon. Seeing it makes me tingle all over. It makes me happy, gives me joy.
I think I want to redo the windows in my office….
Are there colors you feel the same way about? What are they?
