The whole world, as we experience it visually, comes to us through the mystic realm of color.

In case you haven’t heard, Karma has challenged us with a new photo hunt. Well, perhaps it’s not a hunt exactly, but it is a challenge. A fun and, for me, easy challenge as it involves color. In Colors of Your World, Karma has asked us to choose a color we are drawn to, post three (or more) photos featuring that color, and if you want a bonus challenge, do a little research on the color and share what you find. The deadline is Sunday, April 28, but you know how Karma is about deadlines and rules. Just let her know if you need a little extra time.
I love all colors. I truly do. I have gone through all kinds of color phases (something that becomes apparent if you look in my closet). I’m currently in a blue phase when it comes to clothing. A few years ago, it was pink.
But if I have to pick a favorite, the color I am most drawn to is, and always has been, purple.
When I was a teen, my mother let me decorate my room. It was pretty much all purple by the time I finished, or as much purple as I could find. The walls were painted purple. I had a purple shag carpet on the floor, and a purple comforter on my bed. My favorite outfit (a sizzler) was purple, and my favorite platform shoes contained three shades of purple. (Can you tell what decade I was in?)
Way back in 2007, I did a series of blog posts on my other blog, Bountiful Healing, about colors (appropriately called The Color Series). If you’re interested in what I found out about the color purple, visit Purple Craze. Take your time. I’ll wait for you to return.
Maybe I’ll bring The Color Series over to this blog someday. It would be nice to have some of my favorites all in one place.
I won’t eat any cereal that doesn’t turn the milk purple.

Well, that’s more than the required three. I should quit while I’m ahead. Thank you for stopping by and exploring the color purple with me. I hope you’ll participate in Karma’s photo hunt and show us the color that speaks to you the most.
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
