Mellow Yellow

My last two weeks were busy with work, a little mini holiday and then a family health emergency. It made me realize how much we as a society, Need to slow down....de-stress. We need to mellow out. That made me think of the song, Mellow yellow. Actually the lyrics are quite silly and don't really make much sense....They call me Mellow Yellow.

Yellow is a colour you see everywhere. Your produce section in the grocery store is full of it. There are many flowers in your garden that glow of this wonderful colour.

It is considered an optimistic colour.
However people lose their temper more in yellow rooms and babies cry more often.
It makes you feel sunny and happy. Like a bride on her wedding day.

Yellow is warm, like the gentle glow of candle light.

It is sunshine. It is inviting.

Yellow ribbons were worn as a sign of hope as women waited from their men to come marching home from war. Today, they are still used to welcome home loved ones.
Its use for hazard signs creates an association between yellow and danger. Cheerful sunny yellow is an attention getter. It is the most difficult color for the eye to take in, so it can be overpowering if overused.
Yellow enhances concentration, It also speeds metabolism.
