I’ve really been enjoying reading Mal from Turning Turning. Her posts are thoughtful, and give me a lot to think about as a person, as well as someone who creates.

In that vein, she’s having a give away, wherein she asks that you associate an emotion with a color.

It seemed easy, at first, but it took me longer than I thought to solidify a feeling into one emotion, and why.

I choose green because it makes me feel safe.

Here’s why:

Green is the color of cacti. These plants can survive harsh conditions, including living on my windowsill.

Green is the color my husband is most likely to wear to Church on Sundays.

Bright, vivid greens remind me of the trees in the yard of the house of my childhood.
