When was the last time you stood out in the rain like a child soaking up raindrops? I tried it the other day and suddenly remembered how glorious those little atmospheric gifts felt on my face! Each afternoon for the past few months our summer days have been interrupted by a blessed rain shower. Its as if each day the heavens open up and declare a meteorological half-time purposefully cooling everything off and as a result, reducing nature into a tolerable state of mind. What lingers is a sublime vaporous mist and more often than not, a promissory rainbow!
Next time it rains…definitely take your shoes off !
Urban rain has it own beauty !
Rain gives us the opportunity to express beyond ourselves…the art of worship!
The next time it rains….lets go for a walk !

Coco was right! Color is so deeply personal. The very first thing I ask a client is, what is your favorite color? Believe it or not that one piece of information tells me a great deal. In most cases what you love to wear is often the color you love to live around. Unfortunately, most people don’t understand that little rule. So often people decorate and select color based on practicality instead of intuition. My desire is to get people thinking about color! So ask yourself, what’s my favorite color? Then go look around your home and see if they match. It should be interesting what you discover.
The colors in your home narrate a story about you. The objects in your home chronicle where you have been and what you cherish. It is your personal, sacred museum a gallery filled with color and treasures!
What is your favorite color?
