While the title of this may be hyperbolic, if you ask people their favorite color, the majority will pick blue. Blue is calming, versatile, and depending on the shade it can even function as a neutral.
Blue is associated with a complex myriad of things. It can be connected to creativity, self-understanding, and loyalty. It has been proven to lower blood pressure and heart rate, and promotes calm.
Of course, we’ve got to let is also be associated with “being blue” or feeling down. This is the happiest song about being blue I can think of. Plus it includes yodeling, which is a skill I admire and pretend I have.
Blue is also connected to the throat, a lapis, and a crescent moon or a circle shape. (I don’t totally understand why, but that’s the way it goes with associations. They can be hard to pin down.)
In a flukey spooky coincidence, a friend of mine published this blog post and mentions a few things that have been popping up in my life lately, so I thought it would be fun to mention it here. Think all things blue.
