    another synchronicity experience!- after i wrote about the purple yellow and pink last week, i went out walking with my mom in the evening and we saw lilies in a garden and looked closely at a big exotic flower that had long purple sections that were tinged with pink, around a yellow center. i took a picture of it and put it on my phone as wallpaper- and my name fit right in the center of it!

    goldregen- wow! a flower with my name! and you found an iris in magenta almost black? i am intrigued. during the time i made your reading antherium flowers came up as a possibility to discuss- they do come in various colours and i would encourage you to look for a pink or purple one, perhaps there is even a magenta one. antherium is nick named “peter on a platter” and its easy to see why. i scanned one into my computer. it was fun to invert the colors, make glowing edges on it and all the other fun things you can do with photoshop kinds of programs.

    i am so glad that everyone has reported finding a positive in it for them.

    keep on living in and loving your colors!

    ROFLMAO!!!

    purple is my color and the description fits me to a T. Thanks for posting “the color of your personality,” Jeff. much appreciated as it gave me a much needed moment of laughter.

    I don’t even remember what the purple beans taste like.

    This is for anyone to follow the links if they like, though I searched for and found this because I was looking for a purple link for bcre8ov.

    http://desktoppub.about.com/cs/colorselection/p/purple.htm

    This page begins with a discussion of meanings with the colour purple, and compliments to purple,

    but scroll down and there is a preference test and you can get the meanings for other colours too (as well they give a breakdown on the popularity of each colour). I really liked what they said about purple being a blend of a warm colour (red)and a cool color (blue).

    It also mentions how too much purple or blue can lead to moodiness. Interesting.

    It took me a moment but I got it that your name says be creative! I confess I do not know what ROFLMAO means.

    I dont know what the purple jelly bean flavour is either. He he I just finished a bag of jelly beans I bought last week as an artists treat. They didnt have purple.

    There is a purple flavour I am wild about though- concord grape. I also like those purple yam treats they sell in the filipino market.

    I am thinking to try continuing this thread with other titles such as;” gelatti and the flavour of your personality”, (I have done a lot of gelatti purchases for artists date treats) or “flowers and the colours in the garden of your personality”.

    the gladiolus (sp?) on my kitchen table have blossomed a profusion of blue and purple blooms.

    may your arts also be likewise blooming and multiplying as the flowers. naturally.

    i love that expression about the garden of your personality too. cultivate, and nurture (((yourself))) therefore, and you will in time reap a harvest.

    another finding along the way that teaches me more about color.

    if we all looked after ourselves like flowers we wouldn’t go far wrong

    plenty of water
    feeding every now and then
    sunshine
    fresh air
    resting and growing times
    room to move

    love flowergirl

    @Jeff

    sorry, ROFLMAO stands for “Rolling On Floor Laughing My A** Off”

    concord grape is my favorite too. I didn’t remember it being purple, though. No fancy market around here, so no purple yams for me. I’ll stick with the orange ones (that being my second favorite color.)

    in regards to “I am thinking to try continuing this thread with other titles such as;” gelatti and the flavour of your personality”, (I have done a lot of gelatti purchases for artists date treats) or “flowers and the colours in the garden of your personality”. If you keep this up I’m going to have to get a new wardrobe… I’m gaining weight as I’m reading… LOL! Anyway, you did give me an idea as to what to do for my first AD – apparently we do have a Gelato Jo’s here and I haven’t had a true gelato in over a decade. That should be quite a treat. thanks for the idea!!!

    namaste,

    It’s Italian ice cream. There’s something different about the ingredients, and it’s the most delicious ice cream you’ll ever taste.

    lower content of butterfat and sugar. also, sugar and water ratios are very specific so gelato never freezes solid, stays soft and delicious and inviting… YUM! I wish I had one right now!!!

    i noticed that bcre8Ov (with the o before the v rather than an i makes it rhyme with love). I like that!

    a cousin to gelati or gelato is called sorbetto- it is fruit based- so you get real fruit flavor not just a color artificially created.

    one thing I learned for artists dates is to be a little decadent, extravagant, and generous with my self. sometimes it can be done with luxury and economy at the same time. sometimes the luxury is the simple things like buying socks that are actually comfortable for your feet, or other high quality products. sometimes they can be acquired from discount stores or on sale at better prices. and sometimes you just spend whatever it costs to splurge. and sometimes its overwhelming with emotion when you give yourself artists treats. I have bought myself two bikes for artists presents as well- ones that stretched my budget but that I really loved. my latest bike is like a racehorse where my last one was like a work horse.

    i am planning a week long artists date coming up- as I have finally a real holiday with no more courses to take in school.
    since i am probably hiking or biking or both i tend to burn up all my extra calories and go looking for more. laughing your ass off probably burns alot too- I would encourage more of it. it does even more for your soul to feel a deep belly laugh.

    today is the 7 and a half year anniversary of my pages (enough time for a tribulation, but I ve been actually having a better time than that!)

    Yesterday I went walking in the forest again, and found my legs felt so much softer and more relaxed after.

    always hoping this thread will keep going- i do long to talk about colours. i like having colour in the world and noticing the way colours affect me. i am amazed by the sense of infinity that one gets from looking at the creative possibilities… for example think about white flowers; which have about a million variations and thats still only examining one colour.

    and i like to use colours to describe what i feel inside. i like to use colourful speech.
    the peace inside me is green. it feels like it has always been inside me- like a jade or an emerald.

    everywhere i look in the world there are colours.

    i see colours in people too.

    i remember how as a child i loved mixing colours on the page, making changes to the texture as well as colour- i was always a very feeling boy- only to have my teacher tell me i wasnt making anything out of it (nothing she saw as being constructive anyway) and therefore to stop wasting paint. but i am recovering my right to just mess around with colours, and having lots of fun with pots of paint to dip brushes in, tubes to squeeze and spread out, pallettes to mix upon, canvases and papers to draw upon… even if just to say i was here.

    it is within a week of my anniversary date this month – 8 years of doing morning pages, and further developing my creative self. i say i get a gold star.
