Tag Archive: The color Orange


Orange door

Synchronicities and “winks” are always such a part of my life when I focus on something… a touch of “magic” that is a regular part of my life, and probably yours as well if you really pay attention.

Recently in honor of the vibrant season of Autumn, I have been writing about about the color Orange  along with photos of orange flowers, orange monarch butterflies, vines and colored tendrils of that hue that catch my eye.

I wrote the first essay  in the middle of the night so eager to share the photos and the delight over that color which is such an important part of this magical season of turning.

Several hours later that morning, I left the house and got on the road to go into town for some shopping.  As SOON as I got out there, I was passed by bright ORANGE Volkswagon bug…NEVER have seen one of those before… a really weird color for a car, and quite funky for a Volkswagon which somehow could pull it off!

After shopping,  I went to visit a friend whose house I had not been at for maybe 20 years and when I pulled into her driveway, this is what greeted me before I knocked…! A bright ORANGE door decorated for Autumn. Inside her home, the color orange was repeated in her personal decorating.. charming home-made curtains, dishes, and more.  I could only laugh and say “thank you for the conversation and feedback from the Universe, which apparently loves the color orange too!

Sometimes we think we initiate ideas and projects, but actually I come to think that the Universe is in charge, inviting us to respond to and share its initial promptings and messages that need to get passed on through us.  I DO believe that!

It reminds me of something a very special spiritual director once told me.  “God always initiates prayer. When we stop to pray through something…we are really responding to the invitation to communicate with the larger loving forces”.

I rather like that idea.

So what’s next? Surprise me! (and I’ll share it…!)

There is a retreat center on an island that I visit every couple of weeks to photograph the gardens,   intentionally disappearing from the “World” of artificial noise,  busy-ness, commercialism, laptop, and speed. Long walks through the grounds by the sea with the music of soft winds rustling through the trees, sitting on various stone benches and gazing out into the wonders of nature, flowers, water and rock feed the soul… and always with camera in hand ready to capture something of Beauty -close-up that is probably missed unless one is in reflective but deeply attentive  “mosey-mode”.

Walking quietly with a friend the other day, we headed for the walk bordered on each side by the stunning mounded wall of white mums in full bloom. BUT  then there it was in plain sight, though my friend missed it,  she walking right on by a  long tendril of vibrant orange climbing up the pointed stone fence, silently proclaiming “AUTUMN HERE!”.

I fall in love with this color each year when it bursts through the season of letting go, of drying out, of dying and leaving to drop back down to and under the earth.  Oddly enough, it is at this time of turning, a color of life, of energy, of richness, bounty, creativity and surprise.

Oh, ORANGE!
