Each thing comes alive in the sun: how a stone vibrates to the sun is how it absorbs the light energy at that frequency and the rhythm of the frequency is the key to its colour. The frequency fillets out a specific colour from the spectrum of light an this then becomes the colour of the object.*
vibrant (adj.) 1550s, “agitated;” 1610s, “vibrating” (especially “vibrating so as to produce sound,” of a string, etc.), from Latin vibrantem (nominative vibrans) “swaying,” present participle of vibrare “move to and fro” (from PIE root *weip- “to turn, vacillate, tremble ecstatically”). Meaning “vigorous, full of life” is first recorded 1860. Related: Vibrantly; vibrancy.**
Everyone vibrates uniquely to bring a different “colour” into the world.
To bring this specific colour, it is necessary to find our light environments for bringing this out: the stories we create, talents and values, the atmospheric mix of ideas, experiences, people and truths.
Some things to take a playful look at.
