We had green slate on the floors in our house in Houston and I loved the color so much that I put it in the shower. When I was in that shower with water pouring over my body, I felt like I was in the ocean. I know that the ocean isn't really this color, except maybe for a few seconds at a time, but this color raises associations and feelings.
When the sky in San Miguel is a cloudless deep, deep blue for just a few minutes before nightfall, I feel like I could float on that soft velvet sky.
In Texas when the trees are just sprouting out in the Spring, the green is so intense that I can almost taste it.
I think it is quite wonderful to experience color in more than one dimension but it is okay, you can either think I'm weird or you can tell me about the colors that you can feel or taste.
