My "trace of blue" journals usually include a pair of images but this one by NoŽlle is so striking and good that I am featuring it by itself.
Or course NoŽlle's image has more going on than its blue notes. About the color itself, "[B]lue love is a global affair," says the New York Times
. "Ask people their favorite color, and in most parts of the world roughly half will say blue, a figure three to four times the support accorded common second-place finishers like purple or green."
