You green the world to me

…she saw his eyes still on her—those disquieting eyes with their dim green undertint. Sexy eyes. —STEPHEN KING, Rose Madder

I am absolutely in love with the color green. Green is nature, green is fertility, green is tranquility and peace. Green can symbolize many intangibles, ranging from wealth and prosperity to power, greed and envy to confidence and intelligence. Green can be elegant, luxurious. It can impart a delicate quality. Or it can indicate danger.

As a side note, I recently bathed my living room in the pale avocado paint color by Benjamin Moore and I love-ity love love it. It’s so chill and refreshing, like the little veins on a leaf when the sun is shining straight through.

Since winter never seems to want to end (yes, it’s actually snowing outside as I type), I decided to put together a little tribute to the color green. Here’s to you, green! Miss ya, love ya, wish you were here…
