Purple

i havent posted in quite a while. But I can’t resist responding to my favorite color! Purple! Any shade from the color of the sky just before dark to the color I most like to wear which is really indigo…a purplish blue the color of my eyes.

in these amazing times it behooves us all to be aware of the violet flame and uts uses.

Purple is often considered the color of royalty. And of course was featured by the late entertainer Prince. In 1982 I traveled to Paris with a group of kids from my daughters French class. I had never flown before and the experience was quite an initiation. One of the group had music. It must have been a CD player or maybe even tapes at that time. I almost said she had an iPod but I realized they haven’t always existed – as ubiquitous as they are now. Anyway I believe she played Prince for the entire 8 hour flight. I was initiated into his music as well as into flying a toute I would do quite a few more times!

There is a poem by Jenny Joseph:

when im old I shall wear purple with a red hat that doesn’t go and doesn’t suit me.

and I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves and satin sandals and say we’ve no money for butter.

look it up…it gets better. I am old and wear purple and do other things to make up for “the sobriety of my youth”. So let me go now and get busy….oh yes I eschew the red hat!

have a happy purple day. I will check my closet for purple before I dress!
