The Friday Five

I was thinking about color, but coming up for a reason why I liked certain colors wasn't easy. Five colors I like and why.

1. It shouldn't come as a surprise to learn blue is my favorite color. I like pretty much all shades of blue though gravitate towards the darker shades like cobalt or royal blue.  I find blue a relaxing color. Blue starry skies is a recurring theme when I dream.  I also find blue empowering since I was told as a little girl blue was a boy's color. My way of being a rebel.

2. Red, my secret favorite. You can't be invisible wearing red.

3. Purple, deep shades like a jewel. Perfect for a Little Princess.

4. Green, again a dark shade. Like pine. I like that turpentine smell.

5. Black. The go with everything color. A color I associate with authority (must have been influenced by the nuns). Or maybe I just bought into the "it's slimming".

What's your favorite color and why?


  1. Red. :)

    It's vibrant, cheerful, eye-catching. It makes me happy.

  2. My favorite color is a medium light pink, like peonies. I'm not as outgoing and outrageous as you red folks.

  3. I love green. It can be anything - calm, bright, fresh. It's so versatile.
