What was Written on the Table Cloths?

At Ideas Cafe events, we encourage those who attend to scribble down their thoughts and feelings on the table cloths as the talks are happening. Here's what was written during the "What is Colour" event, unedited, as it appeared on the table cloths:

Favourite colours:
blue, red, orange, yellow, beige, white, black
I like black & white painting / photograph because it doesn't have colour to distract the emotion of the subject in the painting / photograph
