Your Song of the Day is “Comfort, Comfort Ye My People,” one of my all time favorite Advent songs.

The Color of the Year for 2018 is Ultraviolet. I’m surprised.

For one thing, it seems like we just had a purple, in Radiant Orchid. Okay, maybe that was 2014, but surely purple should be a rare color. I was kind of expecting blue.

Does dark purple make you think of technology, the cosmos, artistic brilliance, and spirituality? It should, according to Pantone.

I never made a single thing in 2017’s leafy green, much as I like green and leafiness. Can you see a deep purple suit in your future? A dress, maybe?
