This weeks Colour Collective color was Mars Violet so it reminded me of the color of mud.  Then I remembered a lesser known fairy tale called “The Pig Brother”.  Story goes since the little boy kept his room dirty, the fairy told him to go find his brother, while she fixed his room. He talks to a squirrel, a wren, and a cat asking if they were his brothers. They deny they are his brothers because they are clean. Along comes a pig, which the boy tries to avoid asking the question to, and the pig tells him that they are brothers. The fairy shows up and asks if the little boy would like to live like his brother the pig. The little boy says no, so he makes a deal with the fairy to keep his room clean and he wont live with his brother the pig.

Here is a fan illustration of my favorite  Dr. Seuss book “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”  Its pretty much a warning to never expect your life to go as you plan, cause it usually doesnt.  And that your adventure will always be different from others.
