Once again, there is construction going on in our building. This time, they are changing the stairways on both sides of the hallway. Or, rather, not the stairways themselves, but the handrails. If they were changing the whole thing, I probably would have lost my mind completely by now.
The word “handrail” might sound innocuous, but there is enough racket behind the wall to test anyone’s patience. The hammering, drilling, and creaking begins early in the morning, and ends around 6 o’clock in the evening. Naturally, they take a break for lunch, but that break is never long enough.
I know that there is such a thing as feeling “blue”, but, I wonder – is there a yellow mood? For me, a yellow mood is a good mood, although it threatens to tip over into mild eccentricity. It reminds me of those times when you laugh so hard that your stomach hurts and you lose your sense of balance. However, it always depends on the nuances of the mood.
Here’s what a guru has to say on the subject of the colour yellow:
Inexorably connected to the sun, yellow sparkles with heat,vitality,energy and light.
Believers in the powers of gemstones say that carrying a yellow gemstone promotes self-expression and that yellow stones stimulate movement and mental awareness,necessary for enhancing decision-making skills.
The softer and more golden shades of yellow bring thoughts of pleasant relaxation and warming comfort, as comfort foods. In times of stress, there is an increase in the sale of yellow foods as people revert to childhood comfort foods such as macaroni and cheese, buttered popcorn, custard, puddings, crackers, cookies, warm soups and ubiquitous, golden-toned French fries.
