I think I’ve made no secret that my favorite color is blue.
Just take a look around my website, and I think you’ll see it’s pretty obvious. But have you ever wondered about blue?
“Uh, no Tony. Why would I waste my time doing that when I can just read what you have to say on the subject?”
Well, I do ponder things like that…maybe too frequently…and I think blue has a very interesting story to tell. For instance, did you know bluebirds don’t see the color blue? In fact, it would appear that owls are the only birds who CAN see blue. Or did you know that blue is the least common color in our food?
How about this? 92% of the people in the world don’t have blue eyes, yet blue is a primary color and more blue is seen than any other color in the world. You may have noticed pictures of earth, from space, show a very blue planet. (so what’s with all this “green” talk I keep hearing?)
Blue is thought to induce more productivity, so apparently a lot of offices are painted blue. Maybe that explains a lot about some restaurants I’ve been in that were painted another color. Women think men like blue, so more blue women’s sweaters are sold than other colors. And here’s a follow up…by most surveys, men do seem to claim blue as their favorite color. I guess I’m Mr. Average in that regard.
Well, I hope I didn’t give you the blues with all this talk about blue. And it’s time I blew out of here and got some other work done. But I’ll leave you with my favorite reason why blue is my favorite color…and a poem about it. My favorite reason is because, in the Bible, blue symbolizes heavenly grace. Bam! I’m sold!
In Faith, Hope, and Love”
