Very often my days start with surprises.
I can awake with new feelings or new ideas, I can switch on TV and see something that requires me to react to it in some way. I can start reading emails and immediately find not just one but several emails that answer questions that I have or at least show me where I can find answers..
Last two months I noticed that I like very much photos of full Moon on the dark sky. You can see that I posted several such photos during last two weeks.
In December I started my first attempts of painting using PC paint program. Very soon I noticed that I like to fill the field with black and then to put the yellow circle close to the right upper corner.
Yesterday I posted the photo by Derek Kind “Full Moon Rising Over Mount Shasta”. Today I found that somebody from the terrific four people blog “The World According To Dina” liked this photo.
Then I remembered that one young man recently joined “The World According To Dina” and he liked some my posts before.
As all my followers are outstanding people I decided to find more about this young man.
I went to Wikipedia and found the following:
“Klausbernd Vollmar, (born 22 November 1946) is a German scientific psychologist, specialized in the language of symbols, in dream, art and advertisement.
Vollmar was born in Remscheid, Germany. He studied German literature, linguistics, philosophy and geography at the Ruhr-University/Germany and the McGill University/Montreal. After his degrees he was awarded a research scholarship by the Canada Council at the McGill University.
He worked as editor in chief of different papers and magazines, as director (theatre and films) and for the Goethe-Institut (the international German culture institution) in Finland.
In the 1970s he returned to university to study psychology. He was a student of the countess Dr. Olga von Ungern-Sternberg (a direct student of C.G. Jung). He undertook anthropological studies in Asia and the Arctic, about which he wrote in his novel “Wasserberg” and his “Arctic Diary”.
Later he ran bookshops in Cologne, worked in the publication department of the Findhorn community, Scotland and was a member of an English Gurdjieff group.
Since the end of the 1980s he has lived on the Norfolk coast, writing mostly non-fiction books for international publishing houses and working for radio and television.
His main subject is the language of symbols, dreams and the impact of colour on our lives. Besides that he is known as a specialist for the Arctic. He published several articles about the concept of the north and the picture of the Inuit in literature and film.
His books are translated in 15 languages. Apart from the books about creativity and personal development he wrote the German standard encyclopedia of symbols in dreams and the first German encyclopedia of colour in history, art and printing.”
Aha! Here is the man who can answer my questions!
Surely, I went to see the last post on “The World According To Dina”.
Below is what I found:
BLACK, WHITE, GRAY
I found this post very interesting. It answered my questions. It explained that yellow colour is female colour and the circle is a female form. It also explained that black is intellectual colour. “Black is fashionable!…Black is sexy!…Black is a lucky colour!”
Today is the Valentine’s Day. Let this post be my gift to you!
There is nothing else I can do!
