Re: blue ceilings/splits
That's interesting- when I lived in Puerto Rico, you could go to a botanica (an herb/medicinal/Santeria/spiritual-magic type shop) which was often run by Puerto Ricans of largely African descent (descended from the old sugar cane plantation slaves), and you could buy a little ball of the most beautiful intense twilight blue chalk. You were supposed to use this chalk to mark little blue X's above your doors and windows or on the path to your door, in order to keep bad people and bad spirits from entering your home. I think I still have a little blue chalk ball somewhere in a box!
