I’ve looked high. I’ve looked low. I’ve looked all over the place, and there’s just no one who can beat Laura from Gringation’s Blog this week. I mean seriously, she is an American living in a place most of us only dream of visiting. She is soon to be married, and up on the Mexicano slang too. My favorite post though is the one where she learns how to find the right taco. She has a refreshing voice, laced with humor, and she’s just a cute as a button to boot. I asked her…
If you were a crayon, what color would you be and why?
I would definitely be a yellow crayon. No question.
In my first apartment in Cancun a few years ago, I decided to paint the walls of my room bright yellow. I toned it down a bit with sheer cream curtains, dark red and brown accents, a straw rug, and dark, rustic wood furniture. It was AMAZING. In Cancun, we keep our windows open 24/7. Walking into that room after a long day at school and interning was a breath of fresh air… the breeze coming in, the playfulness of the colors… *sigh*. It was like instant sunshine.
It’s my belief that you cannot be sad around the color yellow. For me, it inspires youth, vitality, happiness and joy. Since it’s the opposite of dreary, it immediately takes you to a happy state of mind. Plus the sun is yellow. Everyone loves the sun… right?
Maybe that’s why I love living in Cancun. The sun shines almost every day, and I bask in its yellowness every time I walk to the corner store, to grab a taxi, to Starbucks or to a friend’s house.
I’d be a yellow crayon because that way I could make people as happy as I am while they’re coloring.
