What color do you feel like right now?

Today I couldn’t decide what to write so I picked up my book of writing prompts, and thumbed through till I found one that inspired me to write.

Right now I’m feeling purple.  I thought for a moment I might feel green, but no, it’s definitely purple.  Why?  I don’t know.  Purple is a color associated with wealth, and power, you might even say it represents ambition, but I’m not feeling particularly strong, well off, or motivated today.  As a secondary color, it combines red and blue.  Emotional symbolism represents blue as sadness and red as anger, but I really don’t feel sad and angry either.  Regardless of how little sense it makes, I am definitely purple today.

Purple is not one of my favorite colors.  Mix in too much red and it gets pink, mix yellow with it and it turns a desgusting shade of brown.  No, I am not a fan of purple.  I would rather be orange, my favorite color.  Orange is energetic and fun.  Orange is the color of sunset, and fire, and falling leaves.  Orange means cool weather, and my favorite holiday, Halloween.  Orange is the color of the light while sitting bundled up by the fireplace reading a good book, or cuddling with a loved one.

Still, purple is how I feel, and it’s not going away any time soon.  I can feel it settling in for the long haul.  I am going to have a purple day, and there’s nothing to do but try and enjoy it, what ever it leads to.

Do you feel colorful today?  What is your favorite color, and why?  Comments are always welcome, so feel free to share, and as always, thank you for reading.  Have a wonderful day!
