Your eyes, like your fingerprints, are unique. And so is your vision. Blue is the color of your unique vision. Everyone who speaks and performs has blue in their rainbow. Your voice, accent, and style are yours, and only yours, to share. Like your personal features, your backgound and experience are also original, singular. Audiences gather to hear and see something new, something that interests them. That something can be you. As Brenda Ueland puts it, “Since you are like no other being ever created since the beginning of time, you are incomparable.” Knowing this and showing this will add blue to your rainbow. You make a blue connection with your audience when you let them see and hear the real you. When you share your beliefs, ideas and opinions. Having unique eyes allows us to be creative. To see things with a fresh view, from a different angle, or unusual perspective is your choice and source of creativity. In a world of uniformity and sameness, your “I” gives you the edge.
Peter Koestenbaum said, “Creativity is harnessing universality and making it flow through your eyes.”
To recap: Blue is a part of every speaker’s rainbow although it can vary in intensity and brightness. Using “I” as the subject of sentences immediately creates Blue. Blue is the expression of a speaker’s unique vision and personality including physical features, accent, voice, style, as well as background and experience. Blue also comes from creative “I” -deas and views which originate with the speaker.
