What color is your childhood? What color do you see your present? And your future.

colors are symbolic and reflet our emotions. We could make a colored chart of our life with colors. What color or what combination of colors would be your life's.
Try and visualize your childhood. What colors can you see?
What color or color combination is your present? Your future?


Closing Statement from Manue M

Colors are very symbolic.
This conversation did not bring many Ted'sters together. Nevertheless, it looks like all the Ted'sters represented in this conversation, no matter what color their past has been, no matter what their present is, agree on one color for our futur: green.Green is the color of nature and hope. This idea does represent our generation.May we manage to live in a greener world. If we manage to reach that greener futur, I wonder what color will then come as the future color!
Thanks for participating.

  • Feb 28 2012: When I was a kid I would be indoors during class hours and would only remember the afternoon.
    As a kid I would see the world in the YELLOW afternoon shade of the sun.

    Now as a college student, I have a lot of vacant times during mid-day
    Today I see the world in a SKY BLUE light. Just because I am able to see the noon sun more often now.

    I imagine that I will be looking at a world in MIDNIGHT BLACK sprinkled with CITY LIGHTS because my dream job would take all day and leave me free at night.

    If I ever grow old, I imagine myself seeing the GRAY fog of the my hometown and the GREEN vegetation of the mountains there.
    • Feb 28 2012: Dear Mohammad,
      So you are refering at what you are seeing most of the time outside during that time.
      Interesting. Do you feel those colors also reflect your inside world?
