Right now

Right now, this environment would fit me perfectly – an endless moorland with a lot of air & enough space where thoughts can flow freely – and in addition, get to move about without interruption. Lovely!

Grass green / 152

Hej dear friends,

The¬†most recent entries¬†have¬†been pretty¬†colorless, so I’m going with¬†a green¬†theme today.¬†Especially when the summer is around the corner back home in Sweden.¬†It suits as well over here in Australia despite the autumn, the weather¬†is just so nice, most of the time.¬†So this morning we headed out to a nice restaurant where we met ¬†up with a group of friends for early breakfast, – as always, a pleasure to spend time with people I love. It¬†struck¬†me that¬†we¬†now have¬†lived in¬†Sydney¬†nearly¬†five¬†years & that we’ve¬†known those particular¬†friends¬†as¬†long.¬†A¬†rather cool feeling considering that they have¬†been¬†with us¬†from the¬†start,¬†in¬†our new¬†homeland.Very¬†nice feeling, actually.¬†What¬†would life be without¬†friends, huh?¬†One of¬†life’s greatest pleasures, for sure.

Back to the theme, green is not a primary colour, it’s created of a mixture of blue & yellow. It’s considered as one of the additions to primary colours. The complement of green is magenta, at least according to RGB colour wheel. That’s a purple colour corresponding to an equal mix of red & blue light. On the other hand, based on traditional colour theory, the complementary colour to green is considered to be red.¬†The word green¬†is closely related to the old english¬†verb growan which means to grow. It’s used to describe plants or the ocean. It can also describe someone who is inexperienced, jealous or sick.

In USA, green is a slang word¬†for money, among other things. Several everyday expressions have been developed from these meanings, such as “green around the gills”, a phrase used to describe a person who looks ill.¬†In some cultures, this colour symbolizes hope & growth, while in others, it’s associated with death, sickness, envy & even the devil.¬†Green is also associated with regeneration, fertility & rebirth for its connections to nature. Recent political groups in Europe & the West have taken on the color as a symbol of environmental protection & social justice…& consider themselves part of the Green movement.¬†This has led to similar campaigns in advertising, as companies have sold green or environmentally friendly products. (look up the word green in Wikipidea, where you can read more about colours).
