Day 394 Remembering Blue

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem.

Today I looked up at the sky in afternoon and saw the blue sky of my childhood dotted with almost cumulous clouds that usually sprinkled the North Dakota sky. Hours could be spent finding the shapes of creatures and things with story of how each connected in a drama taking place above us. I remember every sky colored with the crayon, “Sky Blue.” This was a new color at the time, 1957! The 64 box of crayola crayons [with built-in sharpener!] wasn’t released until 1958! Sky blue’s hexadecimal is #76D7EA, in case you want that perfect blue in your next sky!

You can explore your favorite colors at Crayola here. When I explore the colors, with blue as a favorite, I would always choose among these:

Actually, depending on the need, that’s the color I’d slide around until it fit– basically a blue-green hue.

What is your favorite color?

Remembering Blue

Remember the blue 

peppered in creatures of white,

floating in our minds.
