Sometimes … when someone ask me, “Gloria, what is your favorite color?” … it throws me into a big silence. Why?
Well, I can’t be just one color in life. I love most all colors … I think in colors … colors affect my moods, feelings. Music does the same. I bet you are the same way if you think about it.
I love soft, pastel colors that have a shimmery appearance … like magic! Romance, soft happy thoughts, wishes come true!
I love bold, beautiful, bright colors … when life is such fun, lots of laughter, loud and happy times such as … the State Fair!
White … I love white. White is clean, sparkly … wonderful. Crispness, sunshine … warm breezes blowing … ocean, waves.
Purple and green … strange enough, these two colors in my life at the same time … bring good luck to me. Happy things. Why in the world isn’t all I have … purple and green!
Black and white … remind me of my beautiful mother. She could wear black and white … put on her bright, red lipstick … no one was as pretty as her. She and Elizabeth Taylor could have been twin sisters. I love black, white tiles … clean, fresh, nostalgic.
I love all the shades of each color, all the colors between. I can’t tell you one color I love best.
I love dusty rose, soft pink, periwinkle blue. I love colors I don’t know the names of. If you ask me what is my favorite color … I will say this one! that one! no, that one!
Note by this Author:
Colors are important to me. When Skip and I used to drive through the deserts for hundreds of miles … I would become upset. (We traveled by tractor trailer to California every other week). I remember after weeks of doing so … I began crying … “I can’t take anymore of this brown, I just can’t take it, I need color in my life”!
I was color-deprived and it had a very real effect on me. Like when we were traveling for days in snow … nothing but white … it had a negative effect on me, also.
Give me colors … happy colors!
