I’d venture to guess we’ve all had them at one time or another: The Blues. I was curious as to where the term came from because usually when I have the blues it’s more like the grays, lacking in color and oomph. It seems that in English we call it the blues because blue is related to rain and rain was considered the tears of the gods (or God/dess, as the case may be).
I love the color blue in all it’s shades. It is not my favorite color, but it is an extremely close second.
