Blue… The Color Of The Year

       Blue…The Color of the Year!

Did you know the color of the year for 2008 is Blue Iris? I recently learned that it was chosen by Pantone, Inc., the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries.
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® said, “From a color forecasting perspective, we have chosen PANTONE 18-3943 Blue Iris, as the color of the year, as it best represents color direction in 2008 for fashion, cosmetics and home products. As a reflection of the times, Blue Iris brings together the dependable aspect of blue, underscored by a strong, soul-searching purple cast. Emotionally, it is anchoring and meditative with a touch of magic.

Irises are known to bloom in the spring. However, when my book, What Color Is Your Brain?  was released in October 2007, the Blue Irises in my garden (purchased from my favorite garden center, Hawthorn Garden) bloomed! The unexpected blossoms were a magical touch that foretold the abundance of book blessings I was about to experience and a loving anchoring to my parents and our passion for gardening. 

To me it was another act of Synchronicity! The color of the year acknowledge that 2008 is the Year of Blue Blogging! “Blue Brainers” are the quintessential social communicators who thrive on connecting with and helping others. However, blogging offers each Brain Color a creative platform for their writing. Yellow Brainer enjoy preparing details for their post; Green Brainers like imparting knowledge in their post; and Orange Brainers blog because it is fun!

Happy Brain Blogging!
