For week 31 of the Focusing on Life: 52 Photos Challenge, Sally, over at The Studio Sublime, prompted us with
"Hues of Blues"
"There are so many meanings behind the color blue, but the one that seems to be the most prevalent is that blue is a cool and calming color. This week, take time for focus on the beautiful hues of blue."
Since blue is one of my all time favorite colors, I thought this would be a snap. But I was totally wrong. I found nothing blue. At least not when I had my camera (or my phone) in hand.
So, I got creative and decided to show you what
Blue means to me,.....
Hues of Blues = Fun! The hues of blues in these beads and fibers are calming, yet fun to me. My favorite go to color. And of course, blue pearls are a signature favorite of mine !
Hues of Blues = My Soul's Love. A feeling of "I am home" comes over me, producing an awe, a calming and a peacefulness that is only satisfied when I am in the midst of the sea,...or ocean.

Hues of Blues = Universal Guidance. When we were a bit lost and I silently asked God/The Universe to show us the way to our hill top rental home in Tuscany, this little blue-eyed beauty showed us 'the road home' to the house (and to the housekeeper - his owner). It was a magical 'sign'. Especially since Siamese are my favorite and my first kitty looked just like this one!

And then there's the
"Hues of Blues" that Rock Your Soul!!
Okay - well, they're more widely referred to as the
Sounds of Blues
but this Kenny Wayne Shepherd instrumental,
"While We Cry"
is one of my all time favorite songs (ever!)
and I wanted to share it with you!

(You're gonna want to turn this one up!)
Please hop on over to The Studio Sublime and see what "Hues of Blues" every one else has snapped this weekend.
You'll be sad and 'blue' if you don't! :-)
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Hues of Blues, Baby!!
