A Color a Day

wharf in Bar Harbor, MaineIn her poem, Colors passing through us, Marge Piercy writes,

“Every day I will give you a color,
like a new flower in a bud vase
on your desk.”

Wouldn’t it be a treat to be the recipient of that daily gift—or even better, to be the giver? How, in all the spectrum of possibilities, would you select just the right color of the day for your friend?

In fact, how did you select the color you gave yourself today when you got dressed this morning?

Did you think about what message you might be sending—to yourself and to the world? Did you consider briefly the psychology or the temperature of the color you chose? (lots of fun stuff on that site)

If you’re like me, probably not. On most days I’m content to settle for default options, saving the more conscious color decisions for special occasions only.

As I think about it now, maybe every day would be a special occasion if I channeled a little more Marc Chagall who said, “Color is everything, color is vibration like music; everything is vibration.”

What color frequency are you vibrating on today? How would you change it if you could?
