there is no blue...

“There is no blue without yellow and without orange.”
~Vincent Van Gogh

My craving for sky blue (as if I don't get enough of it outside every day) inspired me to paint the wall behind our bed this lovely color (and it helped that I scored the paint on Freecycle, too).

It's really amazing how much peace the blue has brought to our bedroom space.

However despite my fondness for blue, I've also been craving orange--I love how warm and alive it feels. Each morning I burn a small orange candle for my morning meditation and I love wearing orange, too.


Une orange sur la table
Ta robe sur le tapis
Et toi dans mon lit
Doux présent de la présent
Fraîcheur de la nuit
Chaleur de ma vie
~Jacques Prevert
