SoCS: Living Color!

19 Comments

Our Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt for today is…. ““black, gray, and white.” Use one, use ’em all. Bonus points if you use all three. Have fun!

There are a lot of colors in between black and white. Not just gray which some people spell, grey. I go back and forth. Most of the world, and most skin colors, are something other than black black and white white. Though it’s okay if your skin is black or white, but most people are not. Most people seem to be some combination of brown, pink, white, black, yellow, orange, red…… and then there are the green folks on the planet whose name I forget from the movie Avatar which is full of wonderful colors!

Some people like black and white photos. I like some other colors in photos. There’s a thing now where people are painting their rooms gray – sort of a dark gray. That might be okay for an office. Neutral can be good, but I think it would get boring in a house.

When I was a little kid, all we had was black, white, and grays on the TV. Even Lassie was in black and white, but I loved that show anyway, and cried when it was over. Now, I prefer color, unless I’m watching an OLD movie, like, It’s a Wonderful Life. I LOVE Christmas movies!

It’s a Wonderful Life does a pretty good job with black, white and gray, plus George Bailey’s imagination!

Color is one of the top ten things I am thankful for.

Living color!

This was a big deal in the 60s!

I’m thankful for Linda Hill, our SoCS host and her weekly prompts and our colorful wordpress community!

Happy Thanks Giving!

  1. I remember when shows started being televised in color. Unfortunately, we still had a black and white TV. Thanks for adding the Peacock, that was fun to see. I love watching “It’s a Wonderful Life.” I hope you have a great weekend.

  2. My brother loves “It’s a Wonderful Life.” His family watches it every Christmas eve after church and I can tell he takes its message to heart. 💛

  3. Did you read “The Bookwoman of Troublesome Creek” about the blue skinned people who lived in Kentucky? It was fiction, but the people did exist. I also remember the first time I saw The Wizard of Oz on a color tv. I had no idea about the change from black and white to color!

  4. Thank you for sharing!!… not only do I remember the transition from black and white to color, but I remember when I saw my first tv set, before that it were listen on the radio (only the shadow knows, Amos and Andy, etc)… I can remember when Mom were working in the kitchen, she would listen to the soap operas, not watch them… 🙂

    Have a wonderful holiday filled with love and happiness and until we meet again…
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)

  5. It’s interesting that skin color was your first thought about black, gray, and white. By the way, there are gray aliens, according to individuals who claim to have had the unfortunate experience of close encounters with the alien species. I also love living colors 🙂

    • I thought of skin color because I don’t like the limitations (?polarizations) black and white labels and thinking suggest. I do my best to respect people’s wishes about how they want to be referred to, though, as in black or white. Gray aliens usually seem scary. But who knows? Thanks for expanding to include that possibility, Rosaliene. Living colors are the best!

  6. It is interesting to see blacks and whites in photos now. Seems many young people are excited about them. I see lots in graduation and wedding pictures. I took my pictures of my first baby in to be tinted. Ah, days of long ago. Nice post. I didn’t do a SoCS today because had a special tribute for a special “princess.” Blessings, dear JoAnna.

  7. I think just about every place I worked had gray walls.

    • There was a year when the counseling agency I worked for had pink walls. It was strange. When I retired, they were light blue. I always have a lot of bulletin boards and/or pictures anyway.
