What colour are you? Sunday July 16, 2017

I am blue. Blue is often used to describe mood. The implication is that you feel low and despondent. (I have felt like that recently).

I am a navy blue, which is what a British navy officer's uniform would be. French navy is a different shade of blue. It isn't a wispy-washy faded blue, but darker. Sometimes the sea is this colour, a rich, dark hue.

The pop-group, The Moody Blues, used the colour to give an impression of the moody music they created. A classification of popular music is The Blues, a type of jazz-rock?

Navy blue eyes are rarely spoken of, but perhaps it denotes a deep blue colour, which could turn grey under certain mood changes.

I am contented to have been made this deep, rich blue. Contentment and self-acceptance go together. I am always aiming at the latter as it is a good springing-board towards energy and growth.

I am already beginning to feel the upsurge of energy as I reflect on these thoughts.

Hi Zareen,
I am also a blue, I'm many blues.
I have two favourites. One is an Aquarian blue, sunshine and sea, nature, inspiration and energy, my happy place.
The other is almost lilac. It isn't it's blue, but not completely, there is a hint of pink hope ever present, but it's confusing because it's blue.
Both are beautiful blues and accept the ebbs and flows of life.

My blues are watery. There's a very rare still one with a film of calm protecting it's peace.
There is a deep dark scary one that I stay well away from.
There's the torrents of rage from far out, barely blue at all, so fast and towering, tumbling up all sorts of seaweed, debris, rocks and broken carcasses. They that come closer with the moon, the eye of which has ferocity beyond measure, but is mythical and always has to blow it's noisy gales back out eventually. It would seem that even that blue is loved.
There is a very funny "Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!" blue :)
A very elegant China Blue.
A trusting baby blue.
A Mother Earth sky blue.
Blue is beautiful and we are all share the Moodscope blue. Wishing love of life to you you and all Zareen. Thank you! LPxx

Wow LP! Are you writing a blog soon? Your writing is so descriptive. I love this xx

LP Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 1:36pm

Thanks Jane! I seem to write best in response! I'm often inspired and motivated by other people's blogs, but don't feel I have anything to say if I consider writing one! LPxx

Jane SG Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 2:53pm

I think you should just write from the heart LP and it will be awesome x

Zareen Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 7:33am

Hi LP, thanks for the lovely response which I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Today I am blue-grey, the stormy, turbulent blue.however I was immensely cheered by your blog.

Jane SG Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 2:53pm

You inspired me to write another blog today. Thank you Zareen xx

David Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 7:48am

My mood is opposite and bright RED as feeling alive and well.I always remember that the BLUES will end some day soon.

Jane SG Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 8:48am

Good to hear you are feeling alive and well today David

Jane SG Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 8:51am

Dear Zareen, blue is absolutely my favourite colour, always has been. Right now Royal Blue is my favourite shade. I think I am Turquoise at the moment. A mix of different shades. I am fluctuating between strength and decisiveness and uncertainty and fear. However I am possibly feeling the strongest I ever have and have moments of feeling all the colours of a rainbow. Thank you for your blog xx

Sally Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 8:54am

I am green. I love nature, and being out in it lightens my mood. I love flowers with lots of foliage. My bath towels are green. I feel thankful in green surroundings. I can appreciate a leaf, a tree, a lush pasture, a hedge and every shade compliments the other. I use lots of green in my paintings .
Thanks for this blog, Zareen! Go well, and other Moodscopers too today.
Today we are off to the Sweet Pea festival in Wem! Yes!!

Message for Nicco - I have replied to your comment on the Teddy Bear blog x

Zareen Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 9:27am

Thanks for all the comments which has uplifted my mood. I appreciate it lots.

The Gardener Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 11:37am

Zareen, I am usual akin to a rainbow - mercurial, coloured according to how events hit me - can change during the day. Today I am black - not the black dog, just events. One of our sons is here, first visit for nearly 2 years - he is spending lots of time with Mr G - but he is hyper-critical of how I am managing, also, making me feel a fool with all my technology - in fact, reduced me to a quivering heap - also, Mr G, having all this attention is giving me more hell than usual - and does not like it when son and I are discussing something - Mr G says he is 'scared' because he does not know (or care, I reckon) what we are talking about

Zareen Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 11:52am

Thinking of you at this difficult, challenging time. Hope that the domestic situation improves for all of you. a Big hug!

The Gardener Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 12:52pm

Thanks Zareen - family diametrics! I have a co grandmother who never hesitates to criticise her children (and discipline grand-children, which is forbidden for me) I don't want to be a scary 'matriarch' but everybody, except this son, tells me that I am doing the best possible in very difficult circumstances - not outright flattery, at all - just friendly encouragement and practical help when they can. So this son's refusal to see that his Mum is an old lady, with financial problems and dealing with possibly the worst affliction imaginable - when logical and rationality has gone - no communication, and avoid confrontation - OK - but Mr G seems to thrive on confrontation - their are no rules - hence my chameleon like colour changes (but they don't do black).

The fact that your son hasn't visited for two year says it all Gardener. Perhaps he would like to stay on a bIt longer and help? He could do all the things he thinks you should be doing and take over for two weeks to show you how it's done. I feel for you I really do. There's nothing worse than criticism from an offspring. How long is your son actually staying for? Can you leave Mr G and him alone for longer periods each time? Say I am just popping out for five minutes..won't be long..and then be out for half an hour. Make it longer each time. Your excuse can be you want your son and his father to have some quality time together. Bon courage. (I wonder why your son has come to visit at all?) Jul xxx

I'm a colour analyst (Image consultant). There is a blue for everyone. My blues are light and bright - the intense blue of a cornflower in sunlight, through the turquoises and light aquas and the deeper aqua-marine. I have a navy blue, but it is light and bright too - almost all the way to a royal blue. All my colours are happy colours and my blues are those of a tropical beach and warm seas. Just today the sun is obscured by a haze of cloud, but the colours are still there.

LP Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 6:16pm

That's the one I was thinking of Mary, cornflower blue. There's midnight blue too x

All shades of blue https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Shades_of_blue Well, I'am learning about colours!

The Gardener Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 5:53pm

Thanks Jul - today has been better - son got an excellent lunch and read/talked to his father all the afternoon. He has had his own emotional problems and just achieved a PhD. The problem seems that he does not think (not having been much in touch) that we have not been trying to cope with the crescendo of problems which have hit us over the last 2 years - and offers airy-fairy solutions to an insoluble problem - and my kids think I'm indestructible and do not take account of the heavy toll taken by sleepless nights, deprivation of social life etc. xx

Jul Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 6:34pm

Hello Gardener. I understand perfectly. So glad today has been better. I think I am guilty too, or was, of thinking I knew how my parents should be looked after, when I actually wasn't on the spot. It's so easy to make this mistake. So I can understand where your son is coming from. I also know what it's like though to be criticised by an offspring. I guess there is no turning point in our lives when as strong women all our lives, our children see us as having difficulty coping? Jul xxx

S Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 7:30pm

I'm a variety of ocean blue, both steely and dull, unfeeling. In the right light, occasionally, however, it appears to flash brilliantly in fierce shades of sapphire.

LP Sun, Jul 16th 2017 @ 11:41pm

The flashes of sapphire wouldn't seem as brilliant if they weren't contrasted by steely blue.perhaps S.

S Mon, Jul 17th 2017 @ 12:05am

Tbh, I was distracted and thought it was our "spirit colour" and took a bit of creative license :P I hoped nobody would notice my mistake

S Wed, Jul 19th 2017 @ 7:02pm

Apologies, LP, since I can't edit, on second glance, I see you make a good point, and I was mistaken about being mistaken! Thanks! I guess that's a slightly glass half full way of looking at it!

Molly Mon, Jul 17th 2017 @ 12:43am

I have a lovely poem written by a man that was 100 years old, when he wrote it, he died at 101. It was about a rainbow. I searched for it tonight but could not find it. How frustrating. Not sure what colour I am but the rainbow poem was so refreshing as this man was so very positive right up until the day he died. If I ever find it, I will share it - as he would love that! He wrote two books as well, one of which I helped him with the editing etc. Not that he needed much help, apart from the fact he didn't know what the internet was and imagine trying to explain that! God rest his soul xx

Jane SG Mon, Jul 17th 2017 @ 2:38pm

I would love to read this poem Molly xxx

Anke Mon, Jul 17th 2017 @ 1:37pm

I am purple.
Dark purple, almost black when times are stormy.
Lilac bluey purple with glitter when the sun is shining on my life.
Pinky plum purple when I am feeling full of love and compassion.
And just plain bright, spunky purple when I am in neutral. I like to stick out. And I like that people know what colour makes me happy.
