While the world debates over whether life is all black and white, or if it brings with it varying shades of grey, I am happy to be day dreaming about one that is splashed with pink hues this week. To be honest, it is not really just THIS week, I think pink is a colour that finds me favouring it on a regular basis ! :-)
Pink has so many associations to boast of, the memories of my mother's pink chiffon saree, the softest fabric I have ever touched, with sprays of white and pink flowers on it, bringing with it such a soothing effect in the scorching heat of May, linger on.
The thought of baby pink that reminds you of Johnson's baby lotion and all things 'baby' along with it. The piggy bank you had as a child, your savings stashed away safely inside it.
Pink that talks of the 'pink-orange' sky as the sun prepares to call it a day, the hues that change colour with every passing second. Pink that makes you dream of a field full of strawberries, of cherry blossoms and misty roses.
Pink that brings along with it memories of cotton candy that was sold outside the gates of your school, that would soften the withered and toughened face of the old man who would sell it.
Pink that makes you think of celebration, of subtle decor at a wedding, of pink pearls and pink champagne...:-)
The list is endless, and then there is of course the pink that adds its gentle beauty to the decor in your home...
The subtle pink carnations in that shy corner, puckering up to kiss the warm rays of the sun...
Or the pretty ones that add the feminine touch to the silver candle stand behind them...
Or the pink that breaks tradition, who says all elephants should be grey ? I think they were totally meant to be pink ! :-)
And the one battle for pink that is the toughest and almost impossible to win is this one below...specially when the colour palette for the better half is 'black-white-and blue', but...persist I shall ! :-)
Have a lovely week ahead ! Needless to say, hope it has a bit of pink in it too. I promise to be back here with more soon :-)
