{insights} what does your favorite color say about you?

Ste. Rose de Lima parish in Chicopee, Massachusetts


When I was a little girl growing up in Massachusetts, I attended Mass every Sunday with my grandparents. They, being creatures of habit (as was everyone else in the parish) always chose the same  pew. I remember on sunny days how the colors of the stained glass window bounced across my grandfather's hands. There was one pane, this aquamarine pane that was so spectacular that when I saw it  during Mass on my recent trip home, I nearly wept from the memory of feeling small and safe between my grandparents as we sat in church on a Sunday morning. 

This is, perhaps, where my love of aqua and turquoise come from. To me, aqua is happy. It's hotel pools and prom dresses. Ocean foam and sailboats. It is my signature color. 

Recently, I came across an article about the psychology of color. Aqua/Turquoise is cool, dreamy, soft, protective, compassionate, faithful. . .
