Colors- Part 1 - BROWN, or the day i discovered a castle in the woods
i've taken to wearing the color of the day assigned by my little Llewellyn's 2011 witches daybook.
it's strictly for fun, but so far i've liked my color combos and somehow each color i've worn seems to enhance the feeling of the day. makes me feel coordinated to life itself, in the flow and ready to go.
like the day i dressed in brown and found a castle with a turret and a big wooden door tucked away down a foresty road.
it's for rent.
it's not exactly a castle, just somebody's beautiful home they probably custom built for their family in the 80s and have now left for the deer and squirrels and foxes.
it sits alone, with a giant turquoise tiled bathroom in the turret, and built in bookshelves and a spiral staircase.
and i want to move in, but it's a bit too grand for us!
i took advantage of the fine foresty day for a walk in the trees.
discovering all kinds of strange wonders, like a flock of quail rising from the brush,
a broken down teepee,
tree soul mates,
a tiny boarded up house (for the evil witch? the woodsman? the gnomes?)
and a view out over the incredible canyon all the way to the mountains.
and even a withering apple orchard in front with a little woodshed.
but back at home, i did a little jig and decided i could try and be happy in my own backyard.
especially if i've got plenty of flouncy twirly skirts.
it's also good to wear a brown floral flouncy skirt for a night out for beers and tarot readings.
joey wore his fine new tribal wooly fringed jacket,
which i thought was rather dapper of him.
and art complimented my vest effusively,
which i thought quite dandy of him!
next up, i find out where turquoise, blue, and yellow can take me!
