Fav quotes from this episode:

“I’ve always been aware that colour is magical.”

“It’s my intention to make the United States more colourful!”

“It would be so cool for us to exist in a place where every body, size and shape and colour and spectrum of expression was represented so that we all knew that we belong.”

“To be an adult just means you love one another – it doesn’t have to feel like a grinding arduous experience.”

“We are all beautifully different”

“The difference between a misfit and a maven is taking ownership”

In this episode we talk about:

  • The metaphysics of colour.
  • How colour affects our mood, hormones, and wellbeing and creativity.
  • The deeply personal associations we hold about colour.
  • How to start with experimenting with colour (even if you think you only like black)
  • The role that colour plays in identity politics and the need for less stereotyping and more diversity in 

Plus, we reminisce about hating being stuck at the 'kids table' when we were younger, but how we quite miss it now!

    Leaving the job, moving out of state, believing in color is so worth the joy it gives me to hold a deep conversation with such a groovy soul like you! Thank you for having me and I’m looking forward to all the love this episode receives.
