I gathered some random blue thoughts to run along side the illustrations. I liked the idea that blue could possibly calm the heart rate. I could use some of that this week…I’ll say no more! You know what I’m talking about.

BLUE IS A COLOR THAT SUGGESTS PEACE. AS THE COLOR OF THE SPIRIT, IT INVOKES REST AND CAN CAUSE THE BODY TO PRODUCE CHEMICALS THAT ARE CALMING AND EXUDE FEELINGS OF TRANQUILITY. INDIGO, FADED INK, TWILIGHT, BLUEBIRD, CORNFLOWER, DENIM, SAPPHIRE. LIGHT BLUE IS THE COLOR MOST LINKED TO CREATIVITY. SKY BLUE IS THE MOST CALMING SHADE OF BLUE.

SKY BLUE INSPIRES SAFETY AND SERENITY. 53% OF THE WORLD’S FLAGS USE BLUE. AND SO MANY CORPORATE LOGOS. DARK BLUE REPRESENTS KNOWLEDGE, POWER, INTEGRITY, AND SERIOUSNESS. THE BUSINESS POWER SUIT, BLUE UNIFORMS OF POLICE. GREEKS USE BLUE TO WARD OFF THE EVIL EYE. IN AMERICA BLUE IS SOMETIMES SAD, FEELING BLUE, SINGING THE BLUES. IN GERMAN TO BE BLUE, BLAU SEIN, IS TO BE DRUNK. BLUE IS A FAVORITE COLOR OF PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE WORLD. AZURE, BERYL, CERULEAN, COBALT… WHICH BLUE ARE YOU?
