pink & red and favorites from the week
1. store window pink accordion skirt and reflection
2. tomales point (from last sunday, but when i saw this hiker's red raincoat and red umbrella, i knew it had to go on my red day!)
3. thank you all for participating!
it's been quite exhilarating seeing all those colors this week! (my favorites linked to below) personally this experiment was challenging as i tend to focus on certain colors for months at a time or even years. but it did make me think a lot about focus. how focus can make you see certain things more clearly and distort other things at the same time. made me think, among other things, about all the random thoughts i get stuck in and what all i may not be noticing because of this...
the pink/red/lots of colors soundtrack:
tangerines are hanging heavy, glowing marigolden hues. teasing a half-pale moon. and i feel a pull to the blue-velvet dark and stars. pink magnolia, blushing and coy, savors the sun while she shines. you've got yours and i've got mine. together we glide through the blue-velvet dark and stars... all it takes is a little faith and a lot of heart, sweetheart.
the rolling stones:
She comes in colors
Have you seen her dressed in blue?
See the sky in front of you...
Have you seen her all in gold?
Like a queen in days of old
She shoots her colors all around
Like a sunset going down
Have you seen a lady fairer?
She comes in colors everywhere
She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
thanks again everyone!
ps. a special thanks to mav who directed a bunch of you this way for the week of colors and for suggesting it be a color a day. (i was just going to do one color for a week originally.)
