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.

Hi Carra:> She does look like a regal and powerul woman! I like her confident stance and the brilliance of her hair. I also enjoyed reading about the color symbolism!
