I love this color beyond its obvious symbolism as the talisman of new beginnings; pale green is exceedingly calm (is that why so many hospital walls are painted bad variations of it?). It has the potential to be both cheery and in-depth, to lighten us up and take us deeper. It holds light at a different tilt than gold or yellow but still with great vibrancy. It looks fantastic coupled with pale, bright blue or even with the darkening night sky.
As I write this post, I realize I’m not the only one mesmerized by the light of light green. On my itunes (KCMG, my personal all-Caryn, all-the-time radio station), I realize folksinger Lui Collins is currently singing, “Green light is all the heart believes.” And why wouldn’t the heart? After all, green light shines its song quiet and steady just as life turns from dead to alive again.
