My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Colors

I love all colors. I love tie-dye shirts because of all the colors that are mixed on at the shirts. I used to wear bright and lively colors until I had to look distinguished as head of the department at my school. Now I wear a lot of black, grays, and blues. (They also make me look slimmer, I was told!) But once I hit my home, off come the "distinguished" and on comes the comfortable crazy colored stuff. I used to have a favorite ski jacket that I wore in high school. It is splashed with purple, pink, and yellow as if someone hit it with paint balls and I still have it after 30 years. I love to wear purple which happens to be my college colors so I wear that a lot at college games. When I want to get attention, I wear bright red (which I did at my national convention, since I'm running for office). Yellows, oranges, or greens makes me smile and feel cheerful. They make me think of the newness of things.

That is really interesting how you change colors when you are home and at work. You're like a chameleon! And I mean that good, just so you know. :D

Such variety! I love that you choose colors based on the occassion or setting. So many people don't realize how important that can be. Love the tye-dye, too!
