The theme for week eighteen of the 52-week photography project was "purple." The Dogwood Photography Studio describes purple as the color of royalty, magic, and mystery.
When I was a little kid, one of my favorite stories was Harold and the Purple Crayon, written and illustrated by Crockett Johnson.
It was about a little boy named Harold, who went out and made an entire world by drawing it with a purple crayon.
I wanted to be Harold. I wanted to have a magical purple crayon to draw a world. An entirely purple world with purple windows and purple doors and purple people and purple food and a purple sky.
I never got that magical purple crayon. This week, though, I got to revisit my love for all things purple. It has been fun to look for purple things, both inside and outside. I discovered that, even though I couldn't draw a world with a purple crayon, I could still discover a beautiful, purple world.
