Oh, The Colors!

It's been said that God's favorite color is green since there are so many varied shades and hues of this beautiful color. But, I've just come from a part of our world that challenges the notion. And, from what I have seen, he/she doesn't really play favorites. I saw blinding examples of most and all. However, I will say that I believe Spirit might actually prefer blue...

No, it's pink...Spirit must adore the zippy shade for making you stop short and exclaim, "Wow, you've got to be kidding me!"

But, a few short seconds later, you're back to considering, "Nope, it's definitely blue. Spirit must love the soothing quality of it all and the depth of calm it brings when you unfocus your eyes, soften your gaze and sit quietly breathing it all in...and out...in...and out.

Later you have the chance to see how well green and blue play together. Throw in a bit of tan to make it all come together quite nicely. But, there's that blue again...showing off with all its shades.

Even the houses seem to understand that there's no reason to be shy when it comes to color. Put them all together and see what comes of it. Mostly, it makes you happy when you see it. Who doesn't love purple? And who doesn't believe it plays nicely with all colors? See, I'm not the only one...

Still, just like any group, there's always one who insists on calling attention to themselves. Shameless self promoters. Who stand out and declare, "I'm proud to be seen. Admire me. See me. Am I not beautiful?"

And, after it's all said and done... The luggage put away. The laundry calling. Back in your own element with memories of the vast beauty you visited...you come back to your own space, perhaps a bit blue now that it's over.

Only to discover....

...that the world just outside your own front door can be pretty spectacular as well. And, that it's good to tramp around the world, take in the color. But even better to come home to the beauty that lives at your own address.

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly

Mr. Author, the trip far exceeded my expectations! Even coming home sick, I wouldn't have missed it for the world. I'm really glad to be back home, too, and that's the best part of all.

Holly ... good choices for your first post upon returning. Just enough to whet our appetites for more! What a wonderful trip for you both ... especially for all of the successes it represents for Michael! Your camera was at the ready and I look forward to more of your eye-candy. I think that you have made HUGE progress that now returning "home" really feels so wonderful to you! We are all glad to have you home with us again here in blogland.

Sweetness, I am just SO HAPPY you're home, though it's dismal that you feel lousy after being in such a land of loveliness. I'm happy there are some little blooms there to cheer you. TAKE IT EASY AND GET WELL ... I've missed you so!
