The Power of Color

a robins egg
the caribbean
a box from Tiffany and Co.

that certain shade of blue
not often seen by most
making it rare
and thus,

a color that evokes a promise
of spring
a place to relax
long awaited treasure

a color to make all your dreams come true

Green Eggs and Glass

Lori and Russell Ford happen to be glassblowers with a flock of chickens and a cow or two. They live about a 1/2 mile from me, with lots of other people's cows between us. Yesterday, I wandered down to their place to pick-up a dozen eggs. Lori has one Araucana chicken who lays the most beautiful greenish/blue eggs. I love opening the carton and seeing 1 or 2 of those magical eggs nestled in with all the other lovely shades of brown. It's not everywhere that you can buy a dozen eggs and a handblown glass to match!

The Return of Color

just thinking about turning green
