Red Was

A L O H A !
" Red was East, the color of the Sacred Fire, blood,and success. "
  Cherokee Nation

Building has a Bindi
" Red is one of the strongest colors,
it's blood, it has a power 
with the eye.  
I use red in all of my paintings.  "
Keith Haring

 Neolithic hunters considered red 
to be the most important color
endowed with divine life-giving powers-

Cave painters too
ascribed magic powers 
to the color red-

 Some cultures believe that red
has protective powers against evil influence.
Try waving these feathers about!

“Rooster today,

feather duster tomorrow”


 Russian Proverb

 " Red
is the ultimate cure 
for sadness. "
Bill Blass

Truly a Baton Rouge
" Love
and a red rose
can't be 
hid. "

I was so surprised to learn that Kauai has deep red plumeria blooms. They are beautiful mixed with the white/yellow ones. A good Hawaiian sunset can pierce through those modern buildings! Aloha, DrumMajor

Little fairy Big, Fairy
some are dainty and light
while other are fat and hairy
yet some have said of the night
only the red fairy
can give dark vision sight.

I feel that way about red myself.

Lovely reds! I used to wear a Tommy Hilfiger dress - it was beautiful and red and became kind of my signature outfit. I can't bear to part with it, so it's in my cedar chest now. (A wee bit outdated and a wee bit too small, too.)
