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.

    Mar 4 2012: I would say my childhood was brown...not horrible but not warm and comforting. My present would be bright lime green and red, coming into my own personality, beliefs and goals (green) but feeling blocked from currently pursuing them (red). My future is lime green and deep blue...where my excitement in chasing my goals meets the satisfaction (blue) of feeling like I'm accomplishing something important.
  • Feb 29 2012: I would like the future to be green and peaceful.
  • Feb 28 2012: I found all colors facinating when I was young, it was the 60s and there were plenty of colors to go around. I remember climbing to the top of a hill and finding abandon gardens where houses used to be, it was like paradise and I was maybe 5 years old. I'm 50 now and i like the color yellow, I even bought a yellow truck, I think it reminds me of that paradise of colors I remember as a child. As for the future, it is unpredictable but I'll remember this question and see what color I feel like then.
    • Feb 29 2012: Very poetic!
      May I rephrase one point: What color would you like the future to be?
  • 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?
