This week is busy at work as well as at home so I want some rich invigorating colors to keep me energized. Obviously, this sort of thing is personal and subjective to each person but deep dark colors help me feel bold and powerful–and of course purple is my power color. Set against the deep blue it makes me feel like taking on the world!
The food looks yummy too! Food and Wine is my FAVORITE magazine for food photography–gorgeous stuff!
This is a lovely quote and makes me want to read the book. I’ve read a lot of other Dickens, perhaps it is time to check this one out!
Charles Dickens’s work is something I have to mentally prepare for–the sheer weight of his sentences and words. His stories are great once I get into them, but making the leap takes commitment. It’s funny how some books you can slip right into and others are work, but they can both be equally satisfying.
I would even take this a step further and say don’t just create a vision in your mind but write it down. Even if this vision changes as you work on it writing things down makes them more concrete–plus you can have the satisfaction of marking things off a list which is ALWAYS my favorite thing to do!
Every strike through is a small step of progress towards my goal!
It is a rainy misty morning today and I wanted to share some color schemes that always come to mind on these sort of days. Cool, mysterious, dark, melancholy, misty, morose, glittering–are all words that come to mind in the rain. These colors soothe. These colors make me think of magic and tall mountains that need scaling to fulfill a quest–of deep forests where tendrils of fog wrap around ancient trunks.
The hint of purple in the violets and crocus peaking their heads up drinking in the water. Spring is creeping in drop by drop as the rain falls.
