The meaning of colour

Last night I attended a concert by the Bromley Symphony Orchestra with my lovely dad and my eldest son. As well as The London Symphony and some Rachmaninov they performed The Colour Symphony by Bliss.

As I watched the normally darkly dressed musicians play this beautiful piece of music wearing blues, purples, reds and greens to reflect the colours which inspired the music, it got me thinking about what colour means to writers and also to me.

So over the next few blog posts I will be exploring colour in writing and maybe writing some colour inspired reflections of my own.

Like… green = affluence? Meh. In my head, affluence is either yellow or purple (purple having more of a “power” tint in it).

    On another note, I have nominated you for the Blogger Recognition Award. Here is the post: . You don’t have to do this if you don’t want to – I know not everyone likes that kind of “chain”. Whether you do or not, I’m glad I had an opportunity to share your blog with others. ^_^
