holidays 1Not always.  But, during the holidays – life can be very blue.  But, blue is not such a bad color and the blues is not such a bad emotion.  Especially when the blues is offered in the manner as the creative artists before me have offered.

Upon observation of all those talented artists before me who participated in life to the fullest despite life’s often hard BLUE edges, I keep in mind that Holidays are not just for family and friends.  Holidays for me offer the keys to gratitude for my artistic soul that will forever

Brown and Blue

Is LOVE an emotion?

A feeling?

A cause and effect?

A slow burning lavender candle

billowing bright and sweet

the ashes of torment and pain?

blue and brown

What is LOVE?

Is it blue tint on brown eyes?

Is it a favorite boot

or necklace or fabric or paper rose?

Is LOVE a combination of two

favorite things, the colors brown and blue?

Brown and blue are two of my favorite colors.

And LOVE is the magnificence of a divine

feeling that brown and blue give me in

every sense of the word.

Here is to LOVE.

To brown and blue divine.
