Colors on a wall

This is one of the ways that I use when I want to keep my favorite colors close to me. Now that I no longer have enough vision to see them, I use my imagination and memory to conjure up images of them. This is what I do.

I stand in front of a wall and then I put my imagination to work. I don't necessarily have any order in mind, I simply allow my mind to go to work. It does not take too long before the colors come flooding back to me. Yellow of course is my favorite followed by purple, blue, orange, red, pink, green, and then the rest follow.

Sometimes I may use my sense of smell to help things along. It goes like this: I think of the beach and the fresh fragrance of the sea breeze and yellow comes quickly in to greet me. Then I would probably think of a rainy afternoon with a rainbow sitting high in the sky and purple comes sauntering in. Then I would probably think of a warm summer's day with a sky as clear as anything and blue comes sneaking around the corner.

If I can muster up the scent of roses then red would probably reveal itself and if I could think of sitting on my mom's balcony on a quiet evening then either a pink or orange sunset would suffice and these two colors would come marching in.

It's lots of fun for me and this is how I remember my colors.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud, those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
