The color that speaks to me.

No. I am not talking about the pink that might remind you of Paris Hilton. I am not talking about the pink splashed all around Legally Blonde. I am not talking about the frivolous, superficial, inane shade of pink that you might associate with giggly teenage girls.

Now that am done with my defensive disclaimers, lets get to the bottom of this business. My favourite color is pink. I even have my yahoo mail customized to pink. And that's not because "its so cute!" or such reasons that I cannot even remotely hope to relate to but...

I do love the shade of rose the sky dons at dusk, a glimmer to remind a tired soul after a hard day's work that romance still awaits, that rosy dreams still can come true, that magic lies hidden in sudden moments of clarity...

I love the pink that rises up a blushing face...

I love the pink of little fingers that hold on to your finger so tight, you never want to let go...

I love the shade of rose that colors my dreams, they remind me of sweet memories yet to be...

and I love the images that pink paints in my head - a happy place, smiling faces, music to dance to and love all around...


Can you blame me for my rosy indulgence now? :)

I like pink as well.

Carried my wardrobe from UK to US and wore a nice double cuffed with platinum cuffs, 100% cotton, anti wrinkle, pink shirt to office on the first week here.

One of my friends was the first to spot me that morning and asked 'Machi, u forgot what pink shirt means here?'.

It then struck me and i was sitting all day with my blazer on and dumped that lovely shirt atleast till the end of my stay here.

Exactly what I think about pink... :)

My dad bought me a Louise Philippe before I came to the US and it was baby-pink...

If u get a chance listen to the song - "Pink", by Aerosmith...

Here is an interesting story. The visitors locker room at University of Iowa's football stadium is all pink.

Former Iowa coach Hayden Fry wanted to soften the opposing team's players with this strategy.

If everything pink is feminine, then why do males too get the "pink" slip? Strange US logic!

:-)

pink is an awesome color.. but I guess sometimes it just gets into the nerves - like a Moto Razr v3 in pink is a bit too much even if endorsed by the lovely Maria Sharapova..

RS said...

thennavan - ah...nice point which goes on to show that pink is an "important" color :)
