Lately I’ve been craving orange. Part of it might be the foods of the season–persimmons, pumpkins, and satsumas are all orange-y. The yoga cami I’m wearing in this pic is another orange fav (ooh, and look how long my hair is getting, people!)
The chakra energy associated with the color orange is centered around the abdomen/pelvis and is tied to creativity and sexuality. While I’m not a believer in the innate properties of chakra colors, I have been in a creative mode lately, so perhaps that’s related to my fixation for orange.
What about you, are there any colors that you’re craving?
It turns out that I also wear a lot of blue, though sometimes it is not obvious. For example I often wear pants to work that are slightly bluish charcoal, I have two suits that are that color. Many of my shirts and ties contain blue motifs, even though it may not be the predominant color.
My daughter pointed out that much of the art I surround myself with contains warm, natural colors.
Many people tell me that I create my living spaces in hues typical of New England in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. It is clearly true, but I think of it as simply “normal” and comfortable, rather than consciously following a historical style. That’s easily explained by my family background and the spaces I grew up in. Am I a mere creature of my upbringing?
Oh I LOVE purple.
