Here's my thoughts about finding time/space for just such moments: I call it my "purple space".
The colour for the stage of my life right now is characterised by the color purple. Not like "Color Purple" of Alice Walker's novel of that name, though by the end of this post, you may think there are analogies between the two concepts.
My purple is literally the color. I color-code my belongings. My iPhone case, my Bible, Kindle cover, MP3 player and its case, the shell on my laptop, my water bottles, and even my eyeglasses, are all purple.*
|These are a few of my favorite (purple) things|
I am purple in our household because it's noticeable at the bottom of my bottomless handbag, but it's not flashy. I'm purple because it's sometimes the cheapest option. I'm purple because it suggests authority and royalty while also being a cool, calming color, and even feminine in an "I'm-not-pink" kind of way.
*My husband said that I should clarify that purple is NOT simply my favorite color -- that award goes to very bright, spring green.
