What a fantastic way to celebrate colour!
Colour very subtly plays such an important part of our lives, influences the way we feel, our health, the way we view ourselves and the world. Colour can be healing and balancing, calming or stimulating.
What exactly is International Colour Day? And why March 21?
From Wikipedia “An international colour day (ICD) has been considered as appropriate since colour is, thanks to visual perception, one of the most influential phenomena in people’s lives and also one of the channels that contributes most greatly to the perception of reality.”
“Every year, March 21 is the “equinox” – aequus (equal) and nox (night). Around the equinox, the night and day are approximately equally long, symbolically relating to the complementary nature of light and darkness, light and shadow expressed in all human cultures”
Have a wonderfully colourful day today and every day, and quoted by Fernand Leger “Man needs colour to live; it’s just as necessary an element as fire and water.”
