Hello again! Today’s theme is “orange”, that colour that brings to mind more positive than negative ideas and concepts. It is a colour heavily associated with sunset, along with pink and purple. It is also the colour of a low-temperature flame, with fire having the potential to warm bodies, cook food, heat metals and cause harm to both person and property. For me, it brings to mind youth, adventure and new experiences in general, including the bad ones. There is also a fruit and a place in the Australia state of New South Wales and county in the USA that shares the name.
