Colourful Inspiration.

Although it we may not realise it – colour brings meaning to our lives. Colour makes up our world. There is no denying that each colour influences our feelings; every colour has meaning and possesses the capacity to play with our mind.

Me included.

OK…..I must go back to my colour wheel…

But tomorrow, when you wake up – take an extra second & take note of the beautiful colours that surround you.
