"Irises On My Mind"

Inspiration spoke flowers; this purple, bearded iris. Memory was the source material...I have planted and watched many grow and bloom.
I have come to know one who has affected me in ways I cannot describe with words. Suffice it to say that this friendship has changed me profoundly and forever.

The color purple fit as this person brings all of the elements it represents.

For those of you who don't know, purple is the color of good judgement; the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It's said that if one surrounds oneself with purple, peace of mind will ensue. Purple has been used to symbolize magic, mystery, and royalty, is the color of purpose, and is associated with the Crown Chakra - this links individual and universal.

I couldn't wait to share it with you. Thank you for stoppping by to take a peek.

It's funny, but i was thinking about what you said about the Crown Chakra and the color purple signifying royalty. The bag for Crown Royal whiskey is purple. Funny huh? Eric your son.
