Sunday- morning. Conversation.
“I want to be purple,”- she suddenly opened her eyes.
“Cleopatra will be spinning in her grave. Because of you,”- I told her.
“The color was a healing ‘escape’. From the men, chasing every her step,”- I lied. I simply liked the rhythm. Nothing can beat the ego of the poet.
“No way! What a crap! Haha”
“I want to be a Wagner, full of the shades of violet in my room..”- she continued. Expected.
“Are you going to write the opera?”- I have to ask serious questions sometimes. Add the sarcasm.
“Yes. I’ll call it “Feeling Purple like da Vinci”
“Wow. Mr Richard would die a second death. From the happiness of course. Your imagination is a royal color, my dear,” – please, woman, eat my flattery.
“Mmm, does it mean I’m sacred to the people of this room?”- she pressed the wrong button.
“Maybe. Depends on the breakfast you’ll cook today…” – time to smile and continue to zzzz.
- The Egyptian queen Cleopatra loved purple. To obtain one ounce of tyrian purple dye, she had her servants soak 20,000 purpura (purple) snails for 10 days.
- Richard Wagner composed his operas in a room with shades of violet, his color of inspiration.
- Leonardo da Vinci believed that the power of meditation increases 10 times when done in a purple light, as in the purple light of stained glass.
