Kind of Blue (Explore #11 - December 19, 2012)

While most people during the holiday season are thinking about the color red I'm thinking about the color blue. Blue is my favorite color, Miles Davis' Kind of Blue is my favorite jazz album, and Chelsea F.C is my favorite London soccer club. The color blue is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, and truth. Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. Blue is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness. In heraldry, blue is used to symbolize piety and sincerity.
