My day of beauty.


The last personality quiz showed me to be very visual. One line in particular struck me:”You love to be surrounded by beauty – natural or not.” Beauty is subjective of course, but the quiz is also correct in stating that I can picture what I want in my mind pretty clearly. When I moved into my house 5 years ago, it was a blank canvas of utter and complete white. Walls, flooring and carpet. For some, white is beautiful. Clean, crisp, pure. Not me. I need rich, deep colorful earth tones. And as I changed the interior of the house to match what I wanted to see every night when I came home, the need to be surrounded by that beauty struck me. Yes, that is what sooths me. The sight of those colors or a particular shape or design. Which is why I particularly love the fall as I pull out all of those colors with candles and vases and silk flowers. I even change my computer and phone settings so that they have fall themes. I took a day off for myself yesterday and part of it was spent pulling out the fall decor. Yes, I should have taken a picture, but I forgot. Yes, I realize that being visual you would think I would love photography….but *that* requires too much patience 🙂

Before doing that, I took a trip to the San Diego Museum of Art. My first one! Which is kind of sad since I’ve been to the art museum in Portland Maine, and been to the Art Institute of Chicago twice. Yet I had not visited my local museum. You know how it goes, you only think of those things when you are traveling and then once you get home you get all consumed with your everyday life and forget to explore what is right around the corner. But I was drawn by a summer only exhibit of a collection featuring Georgia O’Keefe. My favorite of the ones I saw? Autum Leaves of course:

It was a lovely day of beauty.

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test…

NFPC – The Artist

Nature, Foreground, Big Picture, and Color

You perceive the world with particular attention to nature. You focus on what’s in front of you (the foreground) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the colors around you. Because of the value you place on nature, you tend to find comfort in more subdued settings and find energy in solitude. You like to deal directly with whatever comes your way without dealing with speculating possibilities or outcomes you can’t control. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You are a down-to-earth person who enjoys going with the flow.

Are You?

“Mischief is your middle name, but your first is friend. You are quite the prankster that loves to make other people laugh.”

Love the flower, not sure about the description! Snapdragons have always been one of my favorites.  And of course I was born in the year of the dragon 🙂 But really, the last thing I am is a prankster!

You mean I am not purple?


you are turquoise

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You’re smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people’s conflicts well.
Your saturation level is higher than average – You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don’t be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

 That’s OK. This is one of the few online personality quizzes that actually did a pretty good job – at least from my OWN viewpoint. Those who know me will have to tell me if I am wrong!
