Burnt Orange; CYW challenge

When I think of Burnt Orange, the 1970’s come to mind. Seemingly lots of people used this color with interior decorating. In abundance…

Eileen Merry


This sepia-toned photo is my mother circa 1975 or ’76. Taken in Monrovia, Liberia. We had to evacuate when I was 5 (in 1980) because of the coup d’etat.

Color Your World Challenge; Brown

For this color challenge, I’ve decided to post music I like with “brown” in the title.

*I absolutely love this song


*I love RBF and I didn’t even know they did this song haha


*Ah 1971.. the good old days. Or so I’m told… it was 4 years before my time. But C’mon.. the Rolling Stones?! Awesomesauce

Tangerine Quartz

Balancing emotions and expanding visions,

this little orange crystal dispels panic and enhances your calm.


Helping one to make easier decisions,

smoothing out your issues like a layer of healing balm.


Relieving past tensions and initiating emotional release,

becoming one with your acceptance and growth.


It helps put the past in the past and gets the “what-if’s” in your mind to cease,

giving you strength to pursue your own personal oath.

Outrageous Orange; A Tanka

Extremely saddened

That my country has chosen

Outrageous orange

As a representative

For all this land of the “free”
