Episode 85: A Celebration of All Things Blue


A celebration of the color blue and all things blue, from lakes and rivers to blueberries and butterflies. There’s something so regal, so lovely about that royal color.

The ocean in the heat of the day, the horizon melting into the sky.

A basket of blueberries fresh from the farmer’s market.

A blue jay sitting on a tree branch, watching you carefully as you watch them.

Highway signs that guide you gently to where you want to be.

Lake Moraine in Banff National Park, a color so spectacular you almost don’t believe it’s real.

Your best friend’s eyes when they’re laughing at a joke they want to tell you but can’t quite spit out.

The sky above you as you lay in the grass, so vast and endless you feel yourself falling forward into it.

A sapphire ring, glinting in the sunlight, one perfect blue gem surrounded by tiny diamonds.

A mailbox by the side of the road, ready to take your letters to their far off destinations.

Glaciers and icebergs, glinting white above the ocean water, an entirely different story beneath the waves.

Your very favorite pair of jeans, worn in with a rip in both knees.

Blue raspberry popsicle, pulled from the very back of the freezer.

A cloud of butterflies off to somewhere more important.

Hydrangea blooms on a bush, higher than your head, their friendly puffiness bringing you so much joy.

An ancient door on the island of Santorini, brilliant blue against stark white walls.

A field of bluebells swaying gently in the hot Texas sun, a sea of color for you to wade through.

The inside of a geode, cracked open and polished to a high sheen.

Venus as seen through a telescope, light years away, swimming in the dark sky.

The blue lagoon in iceland, as vibrant and pale as you are alive and well.

Mountains at dusk, the sun setting farther off, night creeping in above them.
