The transformation was drastic from pink to blue.., from an active lively to a sober and calm, from a restlessness to a matured room. With the coming of the blue shade came in the work atmosphere.. serious, silent and quiet. But the pink part of me always brings in the giggles even in midst of the seriousness, can’t help but being me! I redefined my blue..yay! Two sides of me, but the pink rules.. and blue comes out whenever necessary!
I walk into my room this morning and the room on its part has turned a shade of pink. I stepped in to find that even I had turned into the same shade in the light of the room.. but then I had to cut off the sun’s rays from the window to keep the room from getting warmer as the day progressed. Once the curtains were drawn the room turned a shade of blue.. 🙂
The room had turned pink as the sun’s rays were reflecting off a pink top of mine hanging near the wardrobe mirror. It turned blue from the rays on the colour of curtains.
And then, I thought I should make a list of all things a shade of pink in my room, at least in visible sight. It became a longer list that I had anticipated.. little things from the colour of the stapler to the highlighter pen to the post-it notes, to the colour of the earring bag, to the caps of some of my lotions to the spines of two of my books I took out to read this morning, pink at the moment ruled my room.
Shades of pink is one of my favorite colours to wear, it also forms part of my name, therefore part of the name of the blog.. now you know where the pins in pins and ashes comes from 🙂 What’s in a name somebody asked long time ago, but I would say a lot rides on it.. it shapes us with its meaning, but in turn we reshape it with our uniqueness. My name, is my own unique pink 🙂
Strange as it sounds, when we look for something, then everything seems to be that, like the world turns pink for me today when the curtains are drawn apart.. it turns blue when they are drawn.
How the world inside my room differs with that single act of covering the sun. The same curtains, the same sun, the same room, but like a pair of tinted lens, they change the air inside it, I feel. To turn this into a serious thought, it is better to have two perspectives and two tinted pairs of lenses than one, anytime.. the good part of having just one is, it makes us happy.. it is bad because there are always other lenses with which we can look at something with.. although it seems very comforting to look at the world with one set of lens it almost always creates a biased view of the world of things. thumb rule then, if not two, at least four to get the whole picture.. 🙂
ps: it is only after I re-read the title, I realized that oh! I was talking about the colours, pink and blue.. the oft spoken, bought colour codes! whatever! bah!
