Travel Theme: Life is like a Box of Crayons

“Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8 color boxes, but what you’re really looking for are the 64 color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64 color box, though I’ve got a few missing. It’s okay though, because I’ve got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8 color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation. So when I meet someone who’s an 8 color type…I’m like, hey girl, Magenta! and she’s like, oh, you mean purple! and she goes off on her purple thing, and I’m like, no I want Magenta!”
― John Mayer

I love this quote. 🙂 Ailsa’s travel theme this week is colorful. So, I’m digging through the 64 color box for my most colorful travel photos.

  1. We just started receiving your blogs and love them! Full of news, great photography and interesting thoughts for the day! I am going to try to make this a magenta or maybe turquoise kind of day! Thanks also for your informative information on the canal issue. We appreciate it all.

    • Lynne, the streets and homes in Central and South America are so colorful. When we helped a Nicaraguan friend get a visa to visit us in the states, we toured many places. He always commented on the drab colors of the houses. “Why don’t they add some color to their lives?” he repeatedly asked. 🙂

I'd love to read your ideas and thoughts below....
