#17 blue

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something BLUE!

Top shelf – old glass Dairy Farmers Milk bottle with pencils, china cat, glass milk jug with buttons, ceramic pourer from Ireland, shot glass, Russian lady & teapot ornament.
Middle shelf – china duck, Arabia Ali milk jug.
Bottom shelf – upturned Dutch beaker, quartz bookend, Persian bottle.

According to a book on Symbols . . . with a very long title!

BLUE Truth; the Intellect; revelation; wisdom; loyalty; fidelity; constancy . . . Blue is the colour of the great deep, the feminine principle of the waters; as sky-blue it is the colour of the Great Mother, Queen of Heaven and of all sky gods or sky powers, such as the Azure Dragon.

I like blue.
I use blue eyeliner.
Sit on a blue velvet chair.
And my cat Robbie has big big marble eyes of sapphire-blue.

What do you do blue?

    I do love a blue sky but I have not always enjoyed a positive relationship with blue . Now I am beginning to really appreciate the colour blue and am seeking to bring more of it into my life. 1. Because I sometimes feel blue and need to confront that and 2. Blue is related to the throat Chakra which is about speaking ones truth and authentic communication. So bring on the blues I say!!!!

      Yep! There’s nothing better than lying on the ground and looking up at a big blue sky, even better with a little canopy throw in!

      Speaking your truth, yes! and also learning your truth, I wonder would that be another Chakra?

        Indeed learning ones own truth would be connected to the brow Chakra and hooking up with the universal truth would be connecting with crown Chakra. that would be indigo and violet. Plenty of colours in the rainbow for us to play with!!!!

      an apt description of post traumatic stress?

        Sounds exactly right to me.

    Mark Tredinnick describes a perfect sky as being “blue as all eternity.” That works for me.
