Purple Moment

July 8, 2006

A dream I had not half an hour ago:

“I like yellow,” she said. “It makes me happy. But now it’s a purple moment.”

I agreed. Purple moment.

Just then a hospital gurney started to roll down the cobbled street.

We ran down after it, but it gathered speed and at the bottom it turned over, ejecting a huge man in a red shirt.

    Lovely, especially the colours! Interesting how many of these short shorts are both beautiful and disturbing at the same time.

    Some lines from Gabriela Mistral, which I just encountered:

    “I have an abiding bliss
    and a lost fortune,
    I am rich with purple
    and with melancholy.”

    Such an ambiguous color, purple.
