Beyonce Passage on Blue…

Ok, so presumably this is where Blue Ivy’s name either came from or it was just a passage that Beyonce considered to fit the purpose of her daughter’s name, when she posted an excerpt from author Rebecca Solnit’s 2005 novelA Field Guide to Getting Lost, on her Tumblr Wednesday …:

“The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us. It disperses among the molecules of the air, it scatters in the water.Water is colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue. The sky is blue for the same reason, but blue at the horizon, the blue of the land that seems to be dissolving into the sky, is a deeper, dreamier, melancholy blue, the blue at the farthest reaches of the places where you see for miles, the blue of distance. This light does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is in the color blue.”
