Another Blog!?

Good morning!

First of all, let me just say that at this very moment, I am drinking what could very well be the absolute best cuppa joe I've ever consumed.  I don't know why it seems better or different.  Same K-Cup (Keurig) - Tully's Extra Bold Italian Roast...  **shrugs** Just thought I'd share that!

Moving along...

A friend of mine posted a message onto another mutual friend's wall, yesterday.  Our friend just got out of the hospital and is having to spend a lot of time in bed.  My friend told him to get himself a "Coloring book and a new box of Crayolas - it's always exciting to use the first one."  I 'liked' that and added,

"Agrees with L***. There is nothing more therapeutic than a brand-new box of Crayolas. The aroma alone is soothing! :o)"

I have been playing with an idea of starting a blog about color, but really had no real inspiration or real reason to do one.  What could I possibly have to say about color?  I love them?  Color is important to me?  Still,  I felt the need to express my love and need for colors.  But how?

After I posted my comment, I shut down the computer and got into the shower.  I grabbed my hot-pink pouf, and my magenta colored body wash.  I happened to glance down and saw my bar of Carress - a pinkish-orange, almost like a sunset.  I put the body wash back onto my shelf and decided on the bar.  As I washed, I noticed how pink my hands were;  from the heat of the water.  

That's when it hit me;  major light-bulb moment.

Natural v Artifical.  An informal look and study of color;  Natural compared to unnatural.  Artificially colored things grouped with the naturally colored things in life.   I could not wait to get out of the shower!

I had the idea.  Now what?  Well, that's where I'm at.  I'm almost ready to unveil.  I have to say, I'm really excited about this.  I think it'll be fun.  You may not.  Fine.  I want to do it for me.  Afterall, isn't that what makes blogging what it is?  Yeah, whatever... I'm doing it, dammit.

Thanks for reading...

Until next time, 

Never fear the darks and always color outside the lines.

Peace atcha.
