(347/366) Christmas Warmth

December 12, 2012 – Isn’t it interesting that Christmas is associated with cold weather, snowy conditions (at least if you are from the Northern hemisphere). And yet, the colours of Christmas are rich reds, deep greens, heavy golds. All warm shades. Isn’t it interesting how we surround ourselves with the opposite of the conditions we find ourselves in? In the heat of summer we wrap ourselves in cool colours. In the depths of winter we surround ourselves with warm shades.

The psyche tries to compensate for so many things in subtle ways.
