The Book of Me – Written by You is a weekly blog prompt created by Julie Goucher of the blog Angler’s Rest. This is a fifteen month writing project to highlight my life so that I will have something to leave behind for my descendants. Week twenty four’s prompt is Favorite Color.
- Do you have a favorite color? And if so why?
- Do you like vibrant colors or darker colors?
- Do you associate anyone with a particular color? If so who and why?
- Does your favorite color reflect your personality?
Since I am an elementary school teacher by day, I am often asked what my favorite color is. I generally tell my students that I don’t have one. I have a hard time choosing because I love color in general. I have colors that I wear more than others. Some colors just do not belong in my wardrobe as my coloring does not agree with them. I love vibrant colors, dark colors, jewel tones, pastels, etc. I enjoy seeing colors in the world around me.
A good friend of mine, who was my maid of honor, is partial to the color purple. My daughter loves turquoise. When I worked actively in theater as a stage crew member, I wore a lot of black. I tend to associate my theatre friends with black as a result. When I used to design costumes, color was often used symbolically to convey a deeper meaning about a character’s personality or motives.
Instead of colors reflecting my personality, I sometimes feel that they convey my mood (or not). Sometimes it just depends what items are clean and not down at the bottom of the laundry pile.
