Short Fiction and Provocative Thoughts
Blue Food articles present a different perspective from the rest of the Art Twerks site in that they offer items of a more serious nature.
Over the ages, the color blue has been used to refer to a higher level of consciousness. This color relates to universal ideals, and is thought to have a calming effect on the psyche. Although not commonly known, an ancient symbol of the human consciousness’s longing for its true origin has been the quest for the Blue Rose. In flower markets today we may see hybrid roses of the color blue, but they are not quite the same thing, as they are a product of genetic modification. The true mystical blue rose symbolizes that which includes and yet transcends the mundane trappings and thoughts that make up what we call life.
I am a great admirer of mystery and magic.
Look at this life – all mystery and magic.
~ Harry Houdini
