“Sun-bleached bones were most wonderful against the blue – that blue that will always be there as it is now after all man’s destruction is finished.” – Georgia O’Keeffe
A Color of Many Hues – and Meanings
If you were to describe the color blue, you could call it azure, robin’s egg, cerulean, cobalt, beryl, slate, indigo, baby, cyan, sky, royal, midnight, navy, lapis lazuli, sapphire, Prussian, steel or sky. Can you think of any more?
If you want to describe someone who is down in the dumps, you could say they are feeling blue.
If something surprises you, it might have come from out of the blue.
If you’re loyal, you might be called true blue. Or if you’re royal, you’re a blueblood and probably listed in the Bluebook. .
But if you cuss, your language is what’s blue.
Blue is the color of ribbons given to first place winners, and a Blue Book will tell you the value of your old car. So why not just sing the blues.
Does any of this matter if you just happen to like the color blue?
