Blue is the sky in the diorama made by the younger Miss Eight.
(Description: Blue sky, white clouds, white origami bird, rainbow, all in a shoebox.)
Blue is the beautiful necklace made for me by Mim. She put some pictures of beautiful necklaces that she had made on her blog. I loved the blue and white one (actually black with grey splotches, but it looks blue to me), but I wanted all-blue. And this is what she made for me. I love it.
(Description: Necklace: large snowflake obsidian – black with grey splotches – beads interspersed with smaller blue sodalight beads, silver caps between each bead.)
Blue are the irises that Dr Cat brought over for me when she came to inspect our kitchen, and take tea. (Coffee actually. Also bubbly wine and cake.) I have often admired her percipience on blog, but I had only met her IRL once before. Even so, she knew that irises are my favourite flower. Along with roses. But roses don’t come in blue, which is my favourite colour.
(Description: Vase of blue irises. Lots of blue irises.)
And a bit blue has been my mood of late. But it is lifting, and something good is coming about, of which more anon.
