Why Purple?

I am having a Random Purple Week inspired by a sudden 
infatuation with all things purple! 
It started here: Remixing Purple

So here are some purple inspired quotes
 to ponder this week:

Night is a curious child, wandering 
Between earth and sky, creeping 
In windows and doors, daubing 
The entire neighborhood 
With purple paint.
~Frank Marshall Davis

“He Who is wrapped in purple robes, 
With planets in His care, 
Had pity on the least of things 
Asleep upon a chair.”
~William Butler Yeats

He wrapped himself in quotations—as a beggar
 would enfold himself in the purple of Emperors.
~Rudyard Kipling

There is no dignity in wickedness, whether in purple or rags; 
and hell is a democracy of devils, where all are equals.
~Herman Melville

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn, 
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover, 
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn, 
But only one mother the wide world over.
~George Cooper

Rules, Schmules…but here they are : 

1. Dig out one of your old journals, or a recent journal. Choose an entry, or a portion of an entry that you feel bold enough or at least comfortable to share. 

2. Write up your blog post, publish and link up here.
Link up the blog post you are sharing, NOT your general Blog address- so we can visit your entry. 
We don’t have a Badge for this Blog yet, but if you just link back to this in your post that will work (Random Journal Day Weekend Link Up) You can use Susie’s RDJ Photo if you like!

3. Kindly visit and comment on the person before or after you in the link up. You can visit more but we understand that everyone is busy. Please visit at least one other Random Journal Day Link Up as that just would make it nice for all.

We look forward to peeking in your journals!

*This Link will start on Friday and go through the week. Link up anytime before the next Friday (Thursday Midnight)!

  1. Thanks Dawn! I'm off to read the other link-ups this rainy northeastern morning. Keeping your ocean sounds on in the background – it's lovely.
