Tuesday 8 May 2012: Orange
Today has been all about food and great company.
Baking and preparing in the afternoon, good friends visiting tonight and I also got a lovely belated birthday-present (decorated with this beautiful flower).
When I was tidying up and preparing to got to bed I thought about those two orange items I had photographed today and decided to google the meaning of the colour orange. Here's one of the suggestions:
Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors. It is said to increase the craving for food. It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. People who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. Lady luck's color is orange. I have been told that if a change of any kind is need in life, just burn an orange candle for 7 nights.
While red is associated with fiery heat, orange is associated with the benign warmth of the sun. A dynamic color to be sure, orange offers a more thoughtful control than explosive red. Curiosity is a driving characteristic of orange, and with it comes exploration of new things.
Put some orange in your life when you want:
- to spice things up when you feel time is dragging
- to become more involved in something
- to increase creativity
- relief from things becoming too serious
