Not surprisingly, as both a writer and a lunatic, I am VERY influenced by my surroundings…and foremost among those influences on my mood, mental health, creativity, and productivity are two main factors:
1) The Weather. I cannot stress enough how much the seasons and the sky and the air tempurature have on my well-being and ability to kick that shit OUT. As I have whined and sniveled MANY, MANY TIMES BEFORE, I have Reverse Seasonal Affective Disorder, the exact opposite of what most people suffer from in a meteorological sense. The cold, the grey, the blustery rainy weather MURDERS THEIR SOUL…whereas, with the coming of Fall and Winter…MY FATASS IS BORN AGAIN.
2) Color. Beautiful color is EVERYTHING to me. It can alter my outlook, soar my soul, inspire my undercarriage, keep The Monster at bay. Beauty saves my life every day.
With that said…what is YOUR favorite color?
I’ll start, because mine is VERY specific and VERY evocative for me.
My favorite color is what I call Farfisa Mod-1960s Pucci-Print-Bell-Sleeved-Mini-Dress Yardley-White-Frosted-Lipstick-And-White-Go-Go-Boots Electronic Organ Orange.
Tell me yours.
