The colour purple

June 9, 2016

Ask my children what their Mama’s favourite colour is and they’ll say, “every colour of the rainbow, except brown and purple. She doesn’t like brown and purple.” The truth is, I do like like lilacs and plums. Amethysts are beautiful, and so are aubergines. I adore wisteria. Iridescent purple wrapping paper is pretty cool, too. With respect to Prince, I’m just not a fan of “purple rain” purple. But I loved the way it looked on him. And I love the way it looks on the women in this Deborah Turbeville photograph. It’s just not for me. As for brown, if it weren’t for brown diamonds (and chocolate) I’d have nothing good to say about it.
