About Me

Hi, Welcome to my blog.

I am like a human spectrometer. I pick up subtle changes in the colour spectrum in the atmosphere. For instance just looking at the sky I pick up when there is an increase in violet or decrease in red.

I see light and colour differently. There is a shift in my sensitivity peak causing me to perceive more violet light and less red light . This both makes life difficult and enhances the way I experience the spectrum.

I generally see the spectrum more balanced in dim light when there is plenty of blue and red light (some summer mornings and evenings and some days in other seasons in the middle of the day.) However, I often see the spectrum as unbalanced.

Sometimes I see outside of the usually visible spectrum into the ultraviolet range. I perceive an iridescent brownish violet light, that I can hardly bear to look at, bouncing off black. Crows for instance will appear quite different to me on a day that I am seeing ultraviolet. This only happens on the brightest days of summer or when I am in snow. I also sense that ultraviolet light causes me to feel agitated, and warmer than usual.

I feel the change in the light as much as I perceive it visually. I know if there is more violet light because I will feel more intuitive or suddenly have a desire to eat crunchy food. I know if there is more red light because I will feel more grounded and have a desire to eat softer foods.

I live by the light meaning that from when I get up the morning I have half an eye out to check what the light is doing. How I see the light affects all my choices of the day – what I wear, what I eat, what I do and how I relate to myself and other people.

I hope you enjoy my blog and I would love to hear from you if you are on a similar journey, have any questions or would just like to chat.
