It has been said that purple has a sacred place in our culture. Purple is mysterious, noble, spiritual. It is created by combining a strong warm color (red) with a cool one (blue). As such, purple boasts the qualities of both, a perfect hybrid. Sleeping and working in a purple room is said to boost creativity; meditating in one can effect a speedier connection to the divine. According to the Luscher color test, folks who love purple as their most favorite tend to be a little eccentric! Purple can be as reassuring as blue, yet retains its mystery and holds the excitement of red!
Regardless, in the spirit of this momentous time in American history, ( sorry, but I am still brought to tears every time I see the brand new first familia on the telly!) I must offer a shameless promotion to my sis, and her beekeeping partner Michael, who created this fab t-shirt in honor of the inauguration! Featuring all 50 states in MY favorite color (guess?), with a peace symbol in the center, it reads “01/20/17 Obama’s Last Day – eight years of Hope, Peace and Change “. Sort of their personal take on the ubiquitous bumper stickers we saw, proclaiming you-know-who’s last day. More importantly, aside from their message that they desire President Obama to stick around for 2 terms, the bigger message is one of solidarity….
