Favorites . . . I don’t do favorites. I really don’t. I've declared this before and I'm doing it again.
To me, life is far too dynamic to invest any energy in the idea of a favorite. I admit to using the word on occasion, in its plural form, like during a weedwalk I might say, “this plant is one of my favorites.” Of course, I very often hear a response from someone that goes something like this, “Rose, you say that about all the plants.”
There you have it.
So when the Etsy Bloggers Street Team asked its members to write about a favorite color and how we use it … all I could conjure was a rainbow, a dynamic entity in and of itself. As I sat with the idea of the ever-shifting, evolving, eternally changing rainbow that sneaks in and out of our worlds . . . I recalled (among other things) my giant bag of cotton floss and the beautiful cords that I spin with that rainbow of color choices . . . I considered my jar of markers, tubes of acrylic and watercolor paints . . . my gardens, pantry, apothecary . . . and I chuckled.
And I thought to myself . . . yep! That’s one of my favorite things about life – the infinite rainbow of choices that we have every single day (every moment!) if we only choose to see them, acknowledge them and act on them.
