Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
Circumstances and situations do color life but you have been given the mind to choose what the color shall be.
John Homer Miller
Though I am a self-proclaimed purple lover, black-eyed Susans provide a comfort to my soul that no other flower can begin to compare. I find the color combination of the sunny yellow and earthy brown to ground me. It takes me back to the roots of childhood, yet soothes the uncertainty of days ahead.
I have always loved caterpillars. As a little girl I would let several at a time tickle my arms as all those tiny legs crawled all over my skin. I think they’re pretty just as they are, but they are even prettier as butterflies. I am mesmerized by their transformation from crawling to flying. As a person who does not welcome change, caterpillars remind me that change can be a wonderful thing. The colors and design of this one is fresh. It energizes me and makes me want to live fully.
I think all butterflies are beautiful and graceful. They are living proof of constant change and beauty. The red bees balm reminds me we all need a bit of passion in our lives.
I find the pinks and oranges of sunsets to be soothing against azure sky lined with puffy white clouds. And if there’s water flowing beneath, the beauty is ten fold for me. The reflection on the water makes me ponder my actions and consequences as I know my own colors reflect upon those in my life. This scene to me is nature’s colors in glory.
Though I am steadily stepping into the future, my world contains all the shades of times gone by. All the colors of my past have been layered to create the pallette of my life today.
Sometimes I feel I am the lone tree in a field of green earth as it stretches through clouds to blue skies, and yet I don’t feel alone because I am connected. I love living in color.
Occasionally, I am blessed to roam worlds other than my own. The pink hue and swirling thorns of the barrel cactus fascinate me. The rock formations and even the grass are different than the world I live in…however I have found as beautiful and colorful as my world is, others are just as extraordinary.
My life is not complete without fabulous purple…and no there is no such thing as too many candles! I might have purple flowers planted throughout my yard and own many purple items, but the significance of this shirt far ourweighs any shade of purple in my life.
Not my candles, but Dirt Mans! This is a confetti of colors, much like the rainbow of my life!
Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. ~Henry Ward Beecher
