Color forecasts -

The New Yorker this week has an article on color and how colors are chosen for us each year.  The article is by Eric Konigsberg and it reminds me of the statement from The Devil Wears Prada on how each of us is influenced by the fashion industry.    It is especially fascinating to read how the color of pills is chosen.  Viagra's blue pill is a color that is neutral and has been successful as such.  It seems the next pill discovery may be lavender.   Nexium is known for purple.   How odd it is to consider how we are influenced, and how many people are working to tap into how to figure out what we like and also to influence our choices.  

Enjoy your favorite shades.   They may change depending on the war in Iraq and the rise of India.  It seems wasabi is the new black.
