My first love was baby blue. Of course Baby Blue and I have known each other my entire life, but I feel like I first saw Baby Blue, first really got to know Baby Blue in 1989. Madonna’s album, LIKE A PRAYER came out that year and the album cover (art directed by her fabulously talented and now estranged frere, Christopher) was a revelation to yours truly. Typical 80s Madonna fare – a closeup of her nude mid-section, dripping with jewels, the top button of her jeans undone and promising more. Whatever. The real KAPOW of the cover was the Baby Blue graphic starburst covering her navel. MY GOD WAS THAT A BABY BLUE.

But, lately my eye has begun to wander. I’m not proud of it, my 20 year itch, but it happens. I’ve been cheating on Baby Blue with her sister –TURQUOISE. And, I admit, I’ve had a little bit of an affair with Teal. Okay, Indigo too. And Navy. Fine, I’ve been having a love affair with….THE ENTIRE BLUE FAMILY! My God does it feel good to get that off my chest!

But I’m not a selfish lover. Au contraire. I encourage you, all of you, to join my love-pile and embrace BLUE in all her glory and all her iterations.
