True blue New Mexico Sky

Greetings all
      My favorite color has always been blue.   I'm not sure why just is.
When my parents bought our first house when I was 4 or 5,  it was 12,000 new three bedrooms, we got to pick out the wallpaper patterns.   I got to pick out the one for my room...  Pink background with rows and row and rows of little grey kittens with blue eyes in various positions of cuteness.   I was thrilled.   I can see it now...  I would look at the pattern at night and pick out my favorite kitten for that night.

        So where did the blue come from.   My love of blue... I think it came from my Daddy always calling things to my attention around me... In nature....  And in any environment.   Keeping alert for tiny details that would allow one to make decisions about what was being seen.
      Keen observer training to be sure.
      The New Mexico sky has the true blue colors almost all the time.   Calming...inspiring...calling out poetry from my soul .

   Happy day all. Happy day

     You know I think a little of that pattern would go a long way.   My mom picked out cardinals in bamboo...  There was way way too much of that in the small room it as in... I believe it was the first room we reprinted.
