The colour of calm

With the onset of autumn I feel much calmer, more in control and most of all I feel optimistic for the first time in months. I believe that I have the ability to change my life into a place I want to be and I am at last confident that all will be well in the end. But instead of feeling “blue” as in melancholy or unhappy, my particular shade of blue is one of calm and peace. As a result I have updated my Blog to reflect this new positivism using a photograph of a blue butterfly taken earlier in the year. Still and quiet this beautiful creature sat slowly folding its wings to a slow rhythmic beat whilst I watched, my eyes becoming heavier and heavier with each wave.

Even the names associated with shades of blue are somehow comforting. Azure, cerulean, cobalt, cornflower, cyan, indigo, midnight, sapphire and slate. Conjuring images of hazy summer skies, warm seas, spring flowers in cottage gardens, rainbows, moonlight and stars, rich jewels and cosy Cornish cottages.

I hope you like the new layout and fresh, calming blue.

I do 🙂

  1. As someone who is colour blind (I get my greens and browns mixed up,I can’t see pink,apparently ,and purple is not what I think it looks like) I find discussion of colours and moods really interesting. Thank you for exploring colour and mood. Watch out for an upcoming post on a future edition of my blog entitled ‘Blue’.

    keep up the good work!
