Still loving blue

Blue is the overwhelming "favorite color." 
Blue is seen as trustworthy, dependable and committed. 
The color of sky and the ocean, blue is perceived as a constant in our lives.

As the collective color of the spirit,
it invokes rest and can cause the body 
to produce chemicals that are calming;
however not all blues are serene and sedate.

Electric or brilliant blues become dynamic and dramatic,
an engaging color that expresses exhilaration.

Blue is the least "gender specific" color,
having equal appeal to both men and women.

How the color blue affects us physically and mentally:
* Calming and sedate
* Cooling
* Aids intuition

You know I had to end the post with a pair of blue (Fendi) shoes...

I think I dream in blue.
I never get tired of it.

What's your favorite color? 
I'm interested to know.

Enjoy your week.
