My thoughts about RED, one of my favourite colours.


I see red.

The colour of blood, which carries our life-force around our bodies.

The colour of passion.

The colour of anger.

A long-stemmed rose, preferably a bunch!

Red is forthright. Red is vibrant. Red makes a statement.

The colour of burning embers.

Post boxes, telephone boxes, fire emergency boxes.

Red lipstick on full lips.

A rich, ripe tomato.

The richest, deepest part of a sunset.

A blood-red moon.

The colour representing our base chakra.

Wear red for energy.

Spotted toadstools, spotted ladybirds.

Red-bellied black snake, red-back spider.


The movies ‘Red’ and ‘Red Dog’.

Red letter day.

Red Cross.

Red hot chilli pepper.

Holly berries.

Father Christmas, Santa Claus.

A clown’s nose.

Red. Red. Red.


What does ‘red’ make you think of?

About Penny Houghton

I have been on my journey of self-discovery for many years, having had a particular interest in meditation and toning in the past. I am still seeking the Truth, and have given lectures on many topics, including healing through sound, animal afterlife, humans connecting and transforming, and living in the now. Currently I run a discussion group, and am considering running workshops. I am eager to share what I have learned along the way with others, and also to learn in return!

  2. very nice! This reminded me of a wee poem my son wrote when he was 7 or so, it began “red is my favourite chair…”

  3. I thought of another one I could have added… Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer!
