‘Purple-hearted’ morning

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.
“Haha, why?”
“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”

Pause. 

“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.

Hahaha


FACTS:

  1. 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.
  2. Richard Wagner composed his operas in a room with shades of violet, his color of inspiration.
  3. 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.

  1. 4. In Italy, the dessert called ‘peaches’ are made with Alchermes, Italian liqueur. Wikipedia: “Its most striking characteristic is its scarlet color, obtained by the addition of Kermes, a small parasitic insect from which the drink derives its name.The drink fell out of favor around the turn of the 20th century because people discovered that its colour came from insects.” Haha! Well, now it’s still being used to make peaches. They are huge and VERY red indeed. And they are very good.

      1. Why do you ‘DO’ that????
        When I said that you can pick up on a ‘simple’ thought and run with it………………I meant you have a ‘talent’ of making things interesting, no matter their complexity/simplicity. After all who else in this world would subject Luke to ‘purple lingerie’???
        If I were going to be “sarcastic”, that’s how I would be!
        I for one do not believe we (as a people) give credit where credit is due, often enough!

      1. Look, in the minds, and hearts, of those that follow your blog you are a “special” Lady!
        How you act in public is a different kind of ‘special’. :)))

      2. Hm. It’s too difficult to get :/ I’m too nice in public (that’s what I know). About “special” – don’t wanna be. Too much obligations. I just wanna BE.

  3. On my thirteenth birthday, my mother asked me what I wanted. “I want to paint my bedroom purple,” I said. And I did. While my favorite color is forest green, purple and shades of purple make a home smile 🙂
