Reader Responses to Blue

True blue colors are depressing by themselves. Guess the only exception to that is on the ocean looking out to where the sky and water meet. That is relaxing. But even then some white comes in to play.

Blue makes me feel cool, weightless, and spiritual.

I like blue, but I find after I am in the room for an hour or so I have to leave.
--Donald and Sharon

Blue, light blues, and royal blues have always gave me a sense of calmness.

Blue is serene in cool tones. In the warm tones it can feel refreshing.

It makes me want to go swimming.

Blue for me is tranquility - I associate it with water, and the wonderful weightlessness of water.
