This month, I suggest we focus on the colour green and its qualities. What does it hold for you?
For me, green is the colour of nature, the sense of harmony and balance that you feel when you’re touched by the beauty of Mother Earth, the feeling of being connected to something that’s vast, magnificent, that is simply awe-some. Nature nurtures, and nature can be brutal.
And green for me is the smell of freshly cut grass. It conjours up springtime, growth, new beginnings; and summer when the natural world is alive and healthy. Green valleys…. lush rice paddy fields … vineyards….green-fingers, caring for the earth. Of course, I’m also reminded of the green-eyed monster, of envy and jealousy and greed, and the ‘greenback’.
How is it for you?
