Am I blue?



How do you know, when you think blue---when you say blue---that you are talking about the same blue as anyone else?

You cannot get a grip on blue.

Blue is the sky, the sea, a god's eye, a devil's tail, a birth, a strangulation, a virgin's cloak, a monkey's ass.  It's a butterfly, a bird, a spicy joke, the saddest song, the brightest day.


Blue is sly, slick, it slides into the room sideways, a slippery trickster.

This is a story about the color blue, and like blue, there's nothing true about it.  Blue is beauty, not truth."True blue" is a ruse, a rhyme; it's there, then it's not.  Blue is a deeply sneaky color.

In this case, blue is gorgeous. Lovely orchids. It's so nice to see them outside. Here in Canada they are indoor potted plants.

Love your 'blue' orchid. I find all colours except yellow, elusive. Everyone sees them differently.
