Blue-Violet

RN879_paint_pigment_photograph_dioxazine_violet_detail_emRecently, I have been working on a fiber project.  I kept running into a problem with the logistics until one night I woke up at 4 am with the solution.  The next day, I was in the  car with my 9 yr old daughter l when I mentioned that I was tired. Of course my daughter asked me why and I told her about solving my fiber project problem at 4 am.

I went on to explain:

“Sometimes when you are a creative person, you wake up in the middle of the night with an idea.  It can be impossible to fall back to sleep until you try out your idea.”

My daughter’s reply:

“Yeah, that happened to me once. I woke up in the middle of the night wondering what purple & blue make when they are mixed together.  I just couldn’t go back to sleep until I figured it out.  So I went out to the kitchen & got some paper so I could mix blue & purple.  It just made a purple color, but at least then I knew.  Colors – you gotta love ’em.”

This little conversation warmed my heart.
