KEEP CALM & LOVE PURPLE
Not having any connection to the Vigils and without me influencing it in any way, my day has been all about the colour purple.
First thing in the morning, a lady in the biggest, most purple hat I’d ever seen walked into my gallery. She was looking for some light bulbs. I asked her if she thought my shop looked like a place that sells light bulbs and smiled at her. She seemed taken aback, then she looked around and ended up buying a scarf. A purple one.
An hour later, my friend brought me a cheesecake. He knows I like the chocolate one (I’m Aries, after all), but in his words, they only had blueberry. So I put this purple delicousness on a plate next to my coffee and went down to work.
I wanted to print something, but as I’ve just run out of yellow toner, I ended up with a purple picture. I smiled to myself because at this point, I was starting to see this as some sort of a sign. I am not a fatalist and I’m not one for fate giving you signs, but this was actually comical. There’s one thing I forgot to mention first, I put on a purple shirt and purple socks in the morning.
The highlight of my purple day came with a “greeting“ from a friend, who gifted me a limited edition Courvoisier cognac bottle which, you guessed it, was purple.
But the best thing about it was the slogan on the lable:
NO VISION IS TOO BIG WHEN NO DETAIL IS TOO SMALL.
