A Question: Puce


This is a long-standing argument between myself and my partner. Guess who insists of course it is a real colour, it has a name doesn’t it?! 🙂

Is it a male/female divide, this question of what constitutes a colour? Or creative/rational mind? Or just personal taste?

So, let’s see if we can lay this one to rest – WHAT DO YOU THINK?

  1. Hm I think its personal taste.

  2. An infinite number of colours exist unnamed. Puce, or our name for it, exists. Apparently, it was named from the colour of bed bugs’ and fleas’ droppings on sheets after having been laundered. Puce in French means flea.

    • I looked it up on Wiki and found that! Lol!
      An infinite number of colours… yes! I agree… is that a spiritual thing, do you think? I know that during meditations and Reiki healing, I ‘see’ colours I cannot describe/name.
      Most men I have had this conversation with flatly refuse to acknowledge any colour other than ‘the primary colours’. I’m wondering how prevalent an opinion this is.

      • My husband is a graphic artist. He sees colours–he speaks of reflected light, chemicals, ancient paints, etc. He sees the subjectivity–insects see ultraviolet–in the spectrum of colours. He sees the differences between natural, chemical, and computer-generated colours. He has a great appreciation for and interest in colours. He lives in a world of colours.

      • Hi Heidi,
        I also see colors that occur while I meditate. Usually when I tell others about the colors, they just look at me funny. Good to know I ain’t the only one 🙂

      • 🙂 Thanks! yes there are a few of us out there but we do seem to be far and few between!
