Purple Majesties

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509





While looking into the complexities of the purple pansy, I wondered what life would be like if everything was purple; then I remembered the words of Dan Aykroyd, a great Canadian-American Actor, who once wanted to be a Catholic priest, studied criminology & sociology; then dropped out and became a famous Comedian. Even though people think he's a funny man, I like his outlook on life: 



We have the most beautiful planet - the Rockies, the purple fields of the United States, the Lake District, the Pyrenees, the turquoise seas of the tropics.

--- Dan Aykroyd


There is something about the color purple that has always been a fascination with me. I recall the first time I saw the Rocky Mountains. I was a passenger in a car going to the West Coast. After a long nap in the car, my eyes opened up and the eyelids fluttered to the beauty of the purple mountains in the distance. The first thought that came to mind was, "O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain; For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood, From sea to shining sea."  There was such a sense of peace and pride --- Patricia Feager








"O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain;
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood,
From sea to shining sea."


Original Words: Katharine L. Bates, 1904.

Original Music: MaternaSam­u­el A. Ward, 1882







December 21, 2015 - I am reminded of the color purple and it fills my heart with passion for our Military, Civil Servants, and all those who serve and protect, expecially those who have made our country great. Remember we do have a Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. I am confident we can made America great for the rest of our lives and for generations to come. To the general public, rest assured, the Real Estate Community believes in home ownership, truth and the American way in making your life more comfortable until you get to the finish line with your own personal address. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year from TX where the Blue Bonnets flourish freely, standing up proudly to the adversities of life.  --- Patricia Feager

Had no idea about Dan Akroyd's dreams, or the quote. Perfectly purple in all its majesty. You tend to be the wind beneath our spirit wings, Patricia. Another beautiful post filled with inspiration.

OH, Patricia....your eyelids fluttered open at just the right moment! The earth was speaking to you so that you wouldn't miss her glory. I happen to truly love that song. Can't tell you why, but that it was written by a woman makes me even more grateful for its words of beauty. 

Love you, beautiful soul!

Yes, that's exactly what I think of.  And, I think purple is such a pretty color in nature, esp when contrasted w/ yellow (the complementary color).

Patricia, purple is sort of an elegant color.  I remember being out in rural Washington State visiting a lavendar farm - purple as far as you could see.  It was just beautiful.  So is your purple pansy!

Hi Patricia Kennedy - several years ago I went to Lavender Farms in rural Texas. It was my first time and as you say, purple for as far as you could see. I will never forget the beauty of lavender fields and the heavenly scent. 

Purple Pride Forever!!!
