Does anyone else get days where they feel particularly attuned to something, say a sense or a word that seems to dominate? Today I’ve had that with colour. As happened earlier in the spring, I’ve felt really alert to colour – craving it even. This morning I felt compelled to add an extra lashing of red lipstick. At lunch I took real pleasure from the yellowness of the lemon that I added to the glass of Coke I was having. On the drive home all the navy blue cars seemed especially navy. The wrapping for a gift was inspired by some pink blancmange in the fridge. My outfit for this evening was inspired by the delightful June cover of Vogue – not the clothes featured, but the overall colour scheme. I don’t know what this means; it probably signifies nothing. But I do know that this sensitivity to colour has enhanced my day, making even the mundane more, well, colourful.
