in studying color theory for web design purposes, i’ve found quite a few theories of people who strongly believe each letter of the alphabet should have a specific color assigned to it. i don’t claim to understand their theories, but i do have a favorite theory which assigns each letter to one of three colors; olive, blue or brown.

for as long as I can remember the name of the Crayola crayon “burnt sienna” was my favorite color. it wasn’t the color i liked; it was saying the name. it just seemed to roll off my tongue with such an elegant sound and after discovering it, i always used it in place of brown.

Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air – explode softly – and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth – boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn’t go cheap either – not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.
