Blue Monday

Posted by Lorac Monday, 14 September 2009

The sun seems to set slowly at the cottage on the lake. There is a true "dusk" that I don't often see at home.  I was sitting down at the dock, watching as evening set in, a cup of tea in hand. This end of the day was "blue" although the day had been brilliant. I felt "alone", almost lonely, though there were many people up at the cottage. It seems colours can affect our moods. A grey  day and we feel "grey", a sunny yellow day and we feel cheery. So is it the weather? or the colour of the weather that affects us?

  2. Everything is slower at the cottage! I love it.

  3. Lorac Says:
  4. Jenn - I never feel better than when I am at the cottage.

  5. Interesting question. I do think I'm affected by the brightness of the day but I'm not sure if colours change my mood.

  7. Beautiful photo, Lorac.
    I find I feel more introspective when the weather is blue. It makes me look closely in quiet awe and I usually find myself smiling in a contented way.

    Grey days are just plain depressing, though.

  9. So lovely. I live in a northern state, so as fall moves on we get shorter days. Light affects me more than color, but there is nothing like a beautiful sunny day. Or a rainy day when you need a rest.

  15. I think the weather definately affects the mood, but that is such a lovely blue sky, it should be for a happy mood.

  16. Colour of the weather affect our moods more. I agree totally.

    There is still much beauty in the quite somber place of blue.
