For Inspire Me Thursday - "Purple and Orange".
Tori Amos' song "The Power of Orange Knickers" (The Beekeeper, 2005) immediately came to my mind.

Purple:
Royalty, wealth.
And to me - creativity.
the power of listening to what
you don't want me to know


Orange:
A symbol for energy and fire.
And to me - the strength of women, my belief in that a woman can do anything that she sets her mind on. A strength that is and has always been considered dangerous...
can somebody tell me now who is this terrorist

This is a tribute to my beloved, dearly missed auntie B (1936-2005) - I knew your fights, I knew your strength. I know that you'll always be by my side.

For Inspire Me Thursday:
This week, we were encouraged to share things that inspire us. Well, what inspires me mostly is fashion ads, and the way women are symbolised in those pictures. The inspiration of this painting is a pic of one of Sweden's most prominent athletics, Therese Alshammar.

I found it to be very beautiful and inspiring, yet a bit sad...
