On a Green Journey Part 1

As the wondrously gorgeous Spring we had here in Muskoka progressed, I found myself inspired by the swiftly abundant on-charge of intensely fresh local greenery. At one point everything was just so green
And it was so fresh! There was very little variance, such as yellowing from dry spells or dying vegetation. Very few flowers had sprung up.

The boarder-line between Spring and Summer had become clearly, visually defined.

Well it stuck. I've had green on my mind for weeks now.

So I decided to go on a little green journey, take a deeper look at the colour green, and share a few highlights from what I've found so far.

The Psychology of green:

  • Green is believed to increase concentration and to have a calming effect.

(Hmmm...I always change my computer colours to include a soft green. I buy into that!)  

  • Is your car green? If it is...a dark green vehicle send the message that you are: Traditional, trustworthy, well-balanced. A bright Yellow-Green says: Trendy, whimsical, lively.

Green Connotations: Most common secondary meanings of the word green
  • nature, growth, grass, hope, youth, inexperience, Islam, sickness, health, Spring, money, greed, envy, St. Patrick’s Day
Proverb (there's a proverb!)

  • A hedge between keeps friendship green. (Your friendship will flourish if you and your friend respect each other's privacy.)

  • For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver. Martin Luther

  • The sincerity of the art worker must permeate the song as naturally as the green leaves break through the dead branches in springtime. Alma Gluck

  • Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon. Doug Larson (sounds right)

  • If your knees aren't green by the end of the day, you ought to seriously re-examine your life. Bill Watterson (Fan!)

(There are overwhelming number of quotes around "green"; I've shown 5 here from those which appealed to me. For an extensive list visit )
