Red and blue make purple, blue and yellow make green, and yellow and red make orange. Red, yellow, and blue are primary colors.
They happen to be the only colors that cannot be made by mixing other colors together.
Somewhere in elementary school I learned about color mixing. I found it fascinating. Think about the impact that color has on our everyday life. What if everything we viewed was black and white (I had to say that for my engineering friends)?
Color is everywhere around us. Science has proven that color even has an impact on our behavior, performance and desire. I tried to use this thinking with my son recently when I noticed that he was separating his food at the table.
I reminded him of when we pulled out some crayons and started talking about how mixing colors creates new colors and helps us explore the spectrum. In the same way we mix certain ingredients together when cooking or as a finished entree. In doing so we get to invigorate our taste buds with something we never tasted before or foods that surprise us because we would have never guessed how the foods would have tasted (or could have tasted) based upon their original appearance.
A few weeks ago a gentleman nearly twice my age asked me a question. "I suppose you are for this reservoir. What do you think will become of it?"
This is a question I hear often. Sometimes people stop me and just start talking to me about a number of topics. Someone once thought I was an attorney and upon a swift introduction began sharing with me their case and wanted my legal counsel. I now carry a card reader so I can charge people on the spot for my time. I take Visa, Master Card and American Express.
