Now I Know

“From barren brown stems to glistening leaf-buds; from the leaf-buds to snowy virginity of bloom… It was like a flute song forgotten in another existence and remembered again. What? How? Why? This singing she heard that had nothing to do with her ears. The rose of the world was breathing out smell. It followed her through all her waking moments and caressed her in her sleep.”
— Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Indigo

Indigo color has one of the longest wave lengths in the visible color spectrum. It is a combination of deep blue and violet and holds the attributes of both these colors.
The word in its present spelling originated about the middle of the 17th century to refer to the blue Indian dye derived from the blue powder of the plant indigofera.
I think so many people are drawn to this color because we have an innate desire to wear the color that’s associated with activating our third eye. Deep down in our souls we know that the activation of our third eye will help us move forward spiritually.
Colorists tell us that if indigo is your favorite color, you are honest, compassionate and understanding; and integrity is extremely important to you. For example, the Virgin Mary is often depicted wearing indigo or blue clothing.

Choosing the right colors

It is on the whole probably that according to coloring, individuals may be classified as follows:
– cool types: golden hair, fair skin, pale pink cheeks with hint of blue, blue or gray eyes; blue-black hair with fair skin, blue or gray eyes;
– warm types: auburn hair, brown eyes, creamy skin, pink cheeks tinged with yellow rather than blue, some of this group have blue-gray eyes. Also those with dark-brown hair, brown eyes, olive skin, red-orange flush on cheeks.
Obviously, the cool type of people will find cool colors such as blues, grays, blue-greens and greens, their best choices with trimmings and accessories, if desired, in the warmer colors for contrast. The warm colors, however, should be toward the cool colors rather than too intensely warm.
The warm type girl, with auburn or brown hair and brown eyes and warm skin with a tinge of orange in it, will apparently look her best in the warm browns, oranges, reds, red-purples and the yellow-greens.
In this case, intermediate are between these two types – the fortunate persons who can wear all colors if the proper consideration is given to the correct proportions of colors and to the occasion on which they will be used.

“The key to pursuing excellence is to embrace an organic, long-term learning process, and not to live in a shell of static, safe mediocrity. Usually, growth comes at the expense of previous comfort or safety.”
