    I’m addicted to cobalt blue. I’ve been feeling this way for about a month now. I like going online to gaze at sapphire stones and blue diamonds. In general, my favorite color is a light pink and has been since I was little. I wonder what this sudden interest in dark blue is all about. I’m in discernment about my life. I wonder if that has something to do with it.

    I’m definitely a blue person. Most all shades of blue, but my favorites are navy, cobalt, and cyan. I recently stumbled across a color called turcyan which looks like a combination of turquoise and cyan. Colors of the waters of the Caribbean and Mediterranean – I never tire of these colors.
