Prompt 24: Favorite Color

This week’s prompt is Favorite Color

Do you have a favorite color? and if so why?
Do you like vibrant colors or darker colors?
Do you associate anyone with a particular color? If so who and why?
Does your favorite color reflect your personality?

Do you have a favorite color? and if so why?

I love me some green! To me, green is the color of life.  It means growth and opportunity to me. I love all shades of green, well maybe except army green or the color of pea soup (the movie The Exorcist kind of messed me up on the latter one.) Anyway, I love seeing the greening up of the lawn as the weather warms up as Spring creeps in. I love how lush and green everything looks come summertime. I also love seeing the last few hold outs of green leaves on the trees in the Fall. Where there is green, there is life and that is where I want to be. 

My other favorite color would be blue. I love the different hues of blue that can be seen in the sky or in the ocean.  Blue to me is the color of daydreams and I am certainly a day dreamer. 



I could just stare at water like this all day!



Unfortunately, water looks more like this right 
now where I live. Oh well. (sigh)

Do you like vibrant colors or darker colors?

I lean toward more vibrant colors when looking at art or in nature. Jewel tones I am drawn to. I think those tones look fabulous on people of color. For my home surroundings, I favor warm neutrals. This gives me a peaceful sort of vibe when I return home from a busy day. I am not a fan of dark colors on interior walls. Living in the northeast I crave every piece of light I can get in these winter months. I don't need to be in an environment that is unnecessarily dark. No sir. Give me light, PLEASE!

Do you associate anyone with a particular color? If so who and why?

I associate the color green with my Aunt Janice, my father's late sister. She was a wonderful lady. She had a great sense of humor and a wonderful laugh that I will always remember. I mean when she found something funny she would just go with it and just laugh and laugh. I just loved this. Oh how I miss her now. Well anyway, green reminds me of her.  I had asked her when I was little what her favorite color was and she surprised me when she answered green. I couldn't quite understand it. My world was all about the pink at that time. My bedroom was pink. My favorite stuffed animal was pink. Even bubble gum was pink. I mean how could she not like pink? Then she explained to me why.

She liked being outside and looking at the trees and grass. The color made her feel happy. I was intrigued but at that time she couldn't change my mind about how I felt about pink. Eventually, I did come around though.

Does your favorite color reflect your personality?

I think green relects my personality. I've been doing a lot of work on myself this past year.  My mind is definitely in a happier and healthier place due to changes I've made in my life. Green is a happy color and though Kermit the Frog may say, "It isn't easy being green," I am enjoying it rather much these days.

    1. I love purple too! I always think of the line from The Color Purple, "I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice." Purple is such a soothing color. Okay, that's my third favorite.
