“What color is the night?” my older son once asked me. I said, “blue”. But then we started to talk about it. We were thinking about the night in the city, the yellowish neon light shining from signs, reddish car light lining the streets, orange street lamps light falling on pavements, flickering blue light from TV screens, purple lights in jazz and blues bars.
Color comes from light
Color is born from light. All the different lights at night create all variety of colors.
But if we ask “What color is the night?”, we probably don’t ask about all these colors that we can see at night. We might be asking quite a different question.
We might want to dive into our emotions, into our souls, into our hearts and find how the night feels for us. What does night mean for us? How does it resonate? What is it hiding for us?
Blue is the night
Today for me the night is blue. Calm, deep, meditative blue. Deep as the ocean. Calm as a pair of beautiful blue eyes of a friend. Meditative, since you can have rest after a long busy day, lying on the bed, listening to silence. Your mind at peace.
Blue Is The Night
So what color is the night for you?
