My wife Kate [cozy blog] likes to poke fun at me and tell me that everything I design I make blue. Although patently untrue, it is easy to see how one can think this. Some of my more well received design work has been based on a color palette of blue and white. I like blue. I like it a lot. It’s a calming color to me.

Just the fact that I know so many people holding undergraduate psychology degrees (though none are practicing…) gives ME the credentials to psychoanalyze myself and conclude that the reason that I tend to lean toward the color blue is because the bedroom in which I spent the first 18 years of my life was blue. My first bike was blue. My first backpack was blue. And, of course, the Yankees are blue and white. Whenever I was asked growing up what my favorite color was, I said “Blue.”

TANGENT: What kind of question is that anyway? Who makes a 3rd-grader declare his/her favorite color in front of the whole class? Can we not teach our children to appreciate the full spectrum of hues in our world – MUST WE PICK ONLY ONE?? I look at the sky and I don’t see BLUE. I see wonderful shades and hues of lavenders, greens, grays and pinks.

Anyhow, what do you think of the new blog design?
