Color

What if blue were pink and grey were green? How would this change the way we see the world. A swimming pool would look like a vat on lemonade, and grey skies would turn into puffy forrest in the sky.
So much of the way we feel about the world around us is based on color. We gauge the coming of summer by the angle of light and the subtle changes in the color green.
We know when someone is embarrassed when their face shines with pink, and we know it's autumn when the hills and hollows light up with a million shades of color that span the spectrum.
I accidentally hit a button on my Picasa app and turned this photo of the sea into a blog entry.

  4. Exactly. What if? We have to know we live in limits
    and nothing is as it seems.
    A bee might see the world in a different light and thus truth.

  6. So true about color.
    I think of that often ....wondering what I would do if the food I ate was colored an "unusual" color (with food coloring. ). I wouldn't want to eat it, even though the taste wouldn't change....simply my "perception" of it.
    Interesting....

  7. I have never thought of this before Rick but you are so right...the world would be completely different if the colors were different than what we were accustomed to.

  8. I think the ocean would still be lovely to sit and listen too, even with a new color! Now, that would be so great when it came to picking out hair color...
