Blue Door Reflection

Blue Doors of Taos Pueblo

Blue Doors of Taos Pueblo

Blue is a primary color.  Blue is a popular color all over the world.  Blue is my favorite color.   Who doesn’t like blue?

Even so, I was intrigued by the blue doors of Taos Pueblo, the oldest inhabited village in North America (click here).  Every door and window is blue, which makes a nice contrast with the neutral adobe.  Blue is used often throughout New Mexico.

Local history says the color blue came from the Spanish explorers who believed the color would ward off evil spirits.  It must work — I didn’t see any evil spirits while I was there.

Thought for the Day:  God enters by a private door in every individual.                                                                    Ralph Waldo Emerson
