I think such a colorful week deserves finishing with a song from a colorful songstress, don't you?
Happy weekend, friends!

Purple. Violet. Lavender. Lilac. Eggplant. Plum. The color of royalty. The shade of mountains in the distance on a foggy morning. Shrinking violet. Purple prose. The sea at sundown. The brushstrokes in the last minute of a dramatic sunset. The color of my bathroom.

This is a gift it comes with a price
Who is the lamb and who is the knife?
When Midas is king and he holds me so tight
And turns me to gold in the sunlight
A few thoughts on yellow. It's taken me some years to warm up to the color yellow, ochre, lemon. Whatever you call it, it's almost more an attitude than a color. It's attractive on so few people; it's stubborn that way. I wore it today anyway, in homage.

The Wetlands this weekend with some dear friends (and then getting fed with obscene amounts of delicious food, but we'll save that for another day). It was more than I had imagined and I hope to visit again before the summer is over.
