The Blueness of Things

she floated with the moon at her back...




The color blue in any shade always has a quieting affect on my mind. In Feng shui they say too much blue can create depression. Perhaps it is the wide open blue of a sky that allows for expansion and wonder. Walking out of work this evening the sky reminded me of a Chagall painting. I did soften the look with an iPhone app, but the moon is real!

...The sky is blue, the earth has no blue. The ocean is the great mirror of the sky. It holds its own reserve of transparent mystery under its blue surface. Goethe says that rather than coming at us or hemming us in, blue draws us after it into the distance. Blue seems to be the colour of the infinite- an endless expanse where darkness and brightness dwell in blue. ~
John O'Donohue
