Speaking of yellow, part two

Yesterday, I put yellow nail polish on my fingers and wrote about it because yellow makes me happy. That might be a given but I never used to have this fascination with yellow. I think it's an odd color actually. It seems like people don't know what to do with it and that makes sense to me. I bought a pair of yellow pants a few weeks ago. It must be nearing summer. Summer is when my yellow comes out in mega doses and I have no shame.
 
When I wrote about yellow yesterday my pictures and computer messed up so I didn't get to put any visual aids (think school teacher). I'm slowly becoming a more visual person.
 
I thought you would miss out if you didn't see all the beauty that yellow brings -- even if you haven't drank the yellow kool aid.
 
Yellow can be so shockingly bright that we need to hide our eyes from it but it also stands out so much that you can't look away. I love that you can't get away from it.
 
In the past few years, yellow has been making an entrance in my life and so I wanted to share a peek into my persistent yellow world, thanks to Pinterest.
 
 
 

 
 
For Christmas, I got the book The Persistence of Yellow. I recommend it in the way I recommend a collectors item if you like all things baseball or all things Lord of the Rings let's say but you might not appreciate it unless you collect all things yellow. It's good we are all different or this life would be boring.
 
"On Tuesday, she woke up and realized she had forgotten the definition of the word 'Impossible.' She decided it must not have been important." - Monique Duval, The Persistence of Yellow
 
Your turn. Tell me what you love. Colors, places to explore, something I wouldn't know about you.
