Better Health Comes in Quiet Colors

Better Health Comes in Quiet Colors


Whether you have insurance or not, whether you're in the worst pain you've every felt in your life or not, it always seems like an extra hassle to get better sooner, because that means waiting for an hour, filling out paper work. Talking. Everyone hates going to the doctor's office.

Except me.

Colored in Your Favourite Place

Colored in Your Favourite Place


Starting with my annual hike on Earth Day, I try to spend at least one day every two weeks outside, hiking. During the summer months, this can escalate to maybe even twice a week, but I'm fortunate enough to have a sprawling national park very near to my home. I consider it one of my favourite places on Earth.

With all of the valleys in my area carved by glaciers, cliff tops are somewhat commonplace. Seen from below in the image below, these cliffs have spawned many daydreams, many stories, and many conversations.

Though typically it's the view that brings me there, the cave running from the top to the base is beautiful as well, and usually keeps cool when the summer days forget to bring breezes.

Experience New Color

Experience New Color


Computer monitors are given a range of Red, Cyan, and Green to compose all the colours that we see. While it's not the primary colours we learn in elementary school, these are the colours our eyes work with.

Understanding that, the following article uses the concept of an afterimage to show you a colour that isn't in your monitor.

I'd almost wonder if someone has made the colour you're about to see in the image here. Just follow the instructions, and the brilliant colour comes easily.

See if you can capture the colour from the image's effects.

Make a colour based on what you see, and post it here.

Share what you see.

Three Generations of Eye Color

Three Generations of Eye Color


Your eye colour had to have come from somewhere. Sure, there's genetics, but let's find a way follow it that doesn't lean so heavily on science. Let's map out your past three generations through colour.

If you can use a photograph, all the better, but if not, try to run on memory.

Make a five-colour palette using the eye colour of each of your grandparents, each of your parents, and your own, and see if there are any overlapping colours.

Here's what I came up with --

Colors Out of the Closet

Colors Out of the Closet


Having recently done laundry, I couldn't help but notice the different colours I was pulling out of the dryer. What looking at those colours got me thinking about was something I've heard in conversation a few times: Comfort Colors.
