Colette says…

“We only do well the things we like doing.”
Colette, Prisons and Paradise, 1932
I consider Colette my favorite author of all time because her spirit and attitude are pretty much BFF’s with mine. You spend your whole life fighting who you are suppose to be, avoiding the color that looks the best on you and pretending to be lost when you have always know where you need to go. Don’t lie to yourself or soon you will forget the truth you were born with.

Color Dreams

A study in 2003 showed that 28.7% of people surveyed dreamed in color.  Some studies claim that only 4% of people actually dream in color and can recall senses (taste, sight, touch, sounds, smells) in their dreams. These people are able to recall their dreams and actually have 3D dreams where they visualize 360* of something. I have always dreamt in vivid color and of places where I know the secret parking spots. It’s always a Gotham city-like scenario I dream about.  When I am on my computer, I watch Jacob chase cats in his dreams.  My mom told me she only dreams in black and white. 

Here is a line from my sister’s favorite show of all time, X-Files!  “Dreams are answers to questions we haven’t yet figured out how to ask”

Do you dream in color?
