#27 the colour of life

027/365 the colour of life, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Our green lava light gets used a lot in the dead of winter. The bright green bubbles floating up and down have a really calming effect on me. The colour also gives me hope for rebirth again in spring.

Today was particularly dull. A strong wind made the minus 17 degrees in the morning feel extra biting. The tabloids this afternoon had headlines of us being trapped in Siberia till the end of February at least. Dismal! For us, Siberia is the coldest place we could possibly imagine!

    We have a yellow lava lamp – actually, my son does. They’re strangely hypnotic. Is there anybody walking around in that kind of weather. Is that celcius or fahrenheit?

    You are so right about lava lamps being hypnotic. I sometimes ‘meditate’ just staring at ours in the dark.

    It’s Celcius degrees. Not many people want to go out unless absolutely necessary. People have this determined pace of walking very briskly in win!ter, all covered by warm clothes. We appear very antisocial at this time of the year, we don’t even look around much, let alone stop and say a friendly hello! This morning it was even colder than yesterday, and the wind had got fiercer over night. And still, one of my colleague cycled to school! He is absolutely crazy! Pity I was in class and couldn’t run out to catch a picture of this yeti with a totally frozen moustache and beard!

    I can relate to the cold – that’s what we have today (the weather site says the wind chill brings the temperature to -33C) I love this picture. My antidote to the cold is flowers. I fill my house with plants that flower. I have a few orchids blooming now and some cyclamen as well as one amaryllis. Instead of focusing on the white outdoors, I focus on the colour indoors.
