Write about what makes you feel strong.

One of my favorite colors is yellow. The feel of sunshine on my face, the smell of lemons growing on a tree.

I’m a fan of color psychology and yellow has both positive and negative connotations when you think about it:

The radiant color of yellow promotes happiness and optimism in the observer. Yellow is said to promote happiness more than any of the other major colors. Believed to have an influence on the left side of the human brain, yellow helps foster strong analytical thinking.

The positive qualities of yellow can also lead to abrasion when it is used too dramatically. While it can be attention grabbing, it can also lead to agitation in the observer. Though it appears warm and bright, yellow can lead to visual fatigue.

One of my favorite crystals is citrine, and it’s meant to inspire happiness, prosperity, generosity, creativity, pleasure, protection, strength, alignment, confidence, stability, moderation, energy, comfort, success, truth, goodness, warmth, digestion, assimilation, enjoyment of life, and spiritual growth.

I have it sitting on my desk, watching over me.

Can’t you smell this photo right now?? It makes me happy.

Speaking of photos, this is a photo of me near our lemon tree on Sunflower Court in Union City. I wrote a poem about the feelings it evoked in me if you’re so inclined to read it.

I miss that terribly about California. Pop something in the ground and you’ve got a beautiful tree two minutes later. I’m being facetious but there’s a reason why there’s so much agriculture out there.
