Comment and I'll give you a color that I think represents you, and then you list ten things you like in that color!
Ari chose tabby, which is a bit of a chalenge. Here, I am thinking about things with depth of color and pattern. Apparently it is another word for a type of cement too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabby_(cement)

1. The boys, Maahes and Ra. They are a pair of orange tabbies that Ari saved and we adopted some years ago.
2. Polished white marble with veins of yellow and pink when it catches the sunlight.
3. Strawberries and fresh whipped cream layered with yellow cake.
4. A desert sunset with sparse clouds streaked across the western sky causing swirls of pink and orange to play across the darkening sky.
5. A school of small fish in an algae-infested pond. Suddenly, the mood will seize them and the will startle and swirl, flashing silver against muddy water and swaying algae fronds.
6. An extreme-close up look at well-shaded clothing in medieval illumination.
7. Cheesecake after an excellent meal that has been given a quick squiggle of berry demiglaze.
8. Faydra's first fingerpainting that still sits by the windowsill in the kitchen.
9. Rupert's rock wall. I don't know how long it took him, but he hand-laid every rock to fit perfectly with those around it. When you relax your eyes and take the whole thing in, it is a beautiful dance of line and texture. My father built a similar wall when I was a child, and I never forgot the proud look when he stood back and took in the finished product.
10. A skilled bellydancer having the time of her life, flashes of light from the fire catching a smile, a flurry of silk, and hands framing the telling of her story--motion and joy woven together with the rising smoke and beating drums.

It was a tough one, but a good writing/thought exercise.
