“Color has taken possession of me; no longer do I have to chase after it, I know that it has hold of me forever.” — Paul Klee
In wintertime, I find it especially helpful to surround myself with color to brighten my mood. Adding color to life is easy and need not be expensive. Color-rich items such as dishes, throw pillows and magazines can be purchased for very little, but also we can add color to our lives without spending a penny. Take “field trips” online and in real time: visit photographic websites and blogs, or browse through grocery-store floral departments and specialty stores with attractive displays of items from all over the world. Let your eyes feast on color to your heart’s content. If we think of color as a sort of visual vitamin, making sure that we get our minimum daily requirement of beauty, we help to ensure ourselves against the winter blahs that can easily overtake us at this time of year.
