In the last several years" colors have been taking on a different meaning for me. I started out early as an artist; therefore, naturally, color played a key role in my life. I was drawn to tubes of paint like some women are drawn to the shoe department. A little later I was drawn to balls of yarn and the displays of brilliant and subtle hues arranged like an artist"s color wheel. Fiber and color were my calling. In between bouts of dabbling in oils, acrylics and colored pencils I picked up knitting needles and later moved a loom into the living room. Weaving took over.

For the longest time my favorite color was red. My entire closet seemed to consist of reds, naturals, and blacks. I even laid out my closet like a color wheel. I have a habit of organizing by color. Although red was my favorite color I still only used off whites on my walls. Gradually as I went through various life changes, the colors began changing. I found myself single at the beginning of the new millennium. Besides ice cream, one of my comfort zones was color. I boldly repainted every room. I needed warmth and turned to reds, oranges, and yellows.

A new husband came along and green came into the picture. Suddenly I was outside much more. I was learning to develop a green thumb. With enough practice in this life, perhaps I"ll have one of those natural green thumbs in the next life. I began hiking. The greens of summer were my favorite. I have always been drawn to water. Blues were coming into the mix. We were moving the green of nature more on the inside. I was thinking organically. I was thinking green and conservation. We painted a soothing sage over the yellow in the bedroom.

My color palette was expanding in all areas. The reds greatly diminished in my closet. It took on the expanse of colors that I was experiencing in my life. My trips to the grocery and now to the local organic farmer as well as what we were growing in our own garden were adding a variety of pigmentation previously absent in my diet.

I was beginning to practice yoga asanas and meditation. I was seeing beautiful indigos and purples when I closed my eyes and could manage to get rid of the monkey thoughts. Suddenly I found myself drawn to wearing shades of purple. I"ve always heard that purple was a spiritual color.

I now see my life taking on a full palette.
