Mittens

In an effort to add a little more color and beauty into the world, every week on Pinterest I pick one of my favorite things and create a a new board to house all the images I find. On Tuesdays I make a blog post devoted to the theme.

Mittens

One of my favorite picture books is The Mitten by Jan Brett. It’s a classic Ukrainian folktale retold and stunningly illustrated by Ms. Brett, The Mitten follows the adventures of little Nicki, who loses his white mitten in the snow — and the curious crew of woodland animals who happen upon it and have their mischievous fun.

Winter

Winter

The icy air smells pure and fresh as it whistles around stinging ears. Numb feet walk leaving crisp, new footprints in the snow. Sounds are quieter, muffled, and the world is eerily serene. Many layers of clothing are snug as snowflakes gently fall. The branches of trees bow low under their heavy load. Everything glistens brightly under a clean, white blanket of snow. Winter is here.

Read more about winter time and some Winter Solstice traditions of the past and present in the article I wrote for Boulder County Parks and Open Space quarterly publication, Images.

Yellow is related to the left or logic side of the brain. It stimulates our mental faculties, creates mental agility and perception, and inspires original thought and inquisitiveness. Yellow is uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun.

    Doors

    In an effort to add a little more color and beauty into the world, every week on Pinterest I pick one of my favorite things and create a a new board to house all the images I find. On Tuesdays I make a blog post devoted to the theme.

    Doors

    When ever one door closes another one opens.

    Doors can represent many things, hope, opportunity, transition from one state or position to another and metamorphosis. 

    • In Christian traditions the three doors of a cathedral or church symbolize faith, hope and chairty. 
    • In Hinduism divinities are carved on door jambs to indicate the deity through which man enters the Supreme Presence. 
    • Janus is the Roman god of doorways and hold the key to the power of opening and closing. 
    • Zodiacal symbolism holds Cancer, the sign of the summer solstice, as the door of men and represents the dying power and descent of the sun. Capricorn, the sign of the winter solstice, is the door of gods, and represent the ascent and rising power of the sun.
    • The door of an Egyptian temple was seen as giving access to the “Amenta, where the soul was united with the immortal spirit and where, from then on, it remained.”
    • The Sumerian goddess Inanna’s passed through seven doors to arrive before the seven judges of the under world
    • Masonic lodges contain three doors, which represent the qualities acquired successively through the stages crossed: discrimination, absence of desires, self-control.

    Red

    This warm and positive color is associated with physical need and will to survive. Red is energizing, exciting emotions in us and motivating us to take action. It symbolizes the spirit of leadership, ambition and determination. It gives confidence to those who lack it. It stimulates passion in both love and revenge.

    Fall-ing for Autumn

    In an effort to add a little more color and beauty into the world, every week on Pinterest I pick one of my favorite things and create a a new board to house all the images I find. On Tuesdays I make a blog post devoted to the theme.

    Autumn Equinox

    Yesterday was the Autumnal Equinox. The word equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night.” At the fall and spring equinoxes the hours of daylight are equal to the hour of darkness. This happens because the Sun crosses the celestial equator. Autumn is a time of change as leaves change color, days grow shorter and temperature begin to drop.

    Why do leaves change color? The bright pigments carotene (yellow) and anthocyanin (red) you see so vividly during the fall are actually present all year. They are simple masked by chlorophyll (green). When the temperature starts dropping, a barrier forms between the twigs of trees and the leaves preventing sugars from exiting and nutrients from entering the leaves. This results in the chlorophyll breaking down, leaving behind these other pigments.
