The Book of Me Written By You~Prompt 24~Favorite Color


I am participating in Julie Goucher's activity:

This weeks prompt ~ Favorite Color

Do you have a favorite color? And if so why?
Do you like vibrant colors or darker colors?
Do you associate anyone with a particular color? If so why?
Does your favorite color reflect your personality?

I have always had a favorite color! It has always been blue.

I have never anaylzed why I like the color blue, I just know it calms and puts me at peace when I see it. Maybe because it reminds me of water? I love water! It can be an ocean, stream, lake, pond or pool. It doesn't matter, I just love the water. Or maybe it reminds me of the sky?  The never ending eternal sky…I am not sure, I just know I have always been partial to blue.

A few years ago I found myself growing partial to another color for the first time. Purple. Well, it does have blue in it, right? I blame adding this color on one of the brand new Harley's I owned. It was a purple Low Rider which we purchased in April 2001. I loved the color and the bike. The bike was purchased because I wanted to ride to Sturgis. I wanted to say "I did it!" 

It is a dream of many Harley riders. I owned a new 1999 black Sportster at the time. I never felt totally comfortable on it, so when I decided I wanted to ride to Sturgis my husband said I needed a bigger bike. Along came my Low Rider.

This is not the best photo of the bike as far as seeing the color, but it was awesome. I proceeded to purchase all of my accessories in purple to match the bike. Jewelry, clothes, scarves, you name it. I loved how the bike rode, it felt balanced. My Sportster always felt  "top heavy" to me.

I believe I became a better rider with this bike, especially since I rode it all the way to Sturgis, South Dakota and back. I loved the bike and believe I went through withdrawals when I sold it, even though I had purchased another new and bigger Harley. I have loved everything purple since then!

Thanks for stopping by! 

 Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
