"The soul becomes dyed with the colour of its thoughts."

Marcus Aurelius - (Roman emperor, best known for his Meditations on Stoic philosophy, AD 121-180)

These colours are wonderful! A very uplifting view.

I think that colours influence us a lot. It is funny how different shades suit different people, both aesthetically and mentally speaking. I am defiantly most into warms like red/rust/terracotta/brown and antique white and green. My husband is blue/turquoise and different oceanic nuances.

confortable to imagine all these colours flying around my body as free thoughts of pure life .

Oh God! I love this post - the combo of the image and the quote is lovely! Thanks so much for visiting! Felted mala beads! You can even make a bracelet mala! Wonderful - just make it beautiful and it will be perfect! I love knitting and have done a bit of felting - I am definitely still a beginner.

Susan - The wool certainly danced a fine jig whilst drying :)

Velvet Woods - I certainly try :)

Jenny - I think I am a fusion of the both of those colour schemes. I've aways liked the autumnal tones but blues and seascape colours work magic too. I certainly wear a lot of turquoise and Lapis Lazuli jewelry. If their was more accessibility I think I'd wear carnelion and tigers eye too.

Caio - A lovely thought :)

Kartika - Thank you for the tips. I am new to felting too. Its only been 8 or 9 weeks for me but I still managed to work my way through a couple of kilo's of wool. Addictive!

Sorry for the delays in responding to posts. My laptop lets me comment on other peoples blogs but often crashes when I try to comment on my own.
