The earth is rich and vibrant with carpets and curtains of myriad greens after June’s nurturing rain and snow showers. Radiantly emanating a strong life force. Sweetly breathing in, while we breath out. Cleansing. Deeply satisfying. Feeding the soul and our primitive need for the solace and the promise of what a green environment brings – food and water, sustenance for body and soul.
From “Psychological Properties of Color”:
Positive: Harmony, balance, refreshment, universal love, rest, restoration, reassurance, environmental awareness, equilibrium, peace.
Green strikes the eye in such a way as to require no adjustment whatever and is, therefore, restful. Being in the centre of the spectrum, it is the color of balance – a more important concept than many people realize. When the world about us contains plenty of green, this indicates the presence of water, and little danger of famine, so we are reassured by green, on a primitive level.”
“And the needles of the pine trees, freshly washed to a deep, rich green, shimmered with droplets that blinked like clear crystals.”
“Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises”
-Pedro Calderon de la Barca
