Sporting a braided updo, Beyoncé was seen with her 6-month-old daughter Blue Ivy as they left Bergdorf Goodman in New York City on Wednesday (July 18). In a patterned jumpsuit accessorized with metallic flats, the new mom protectively carried her girl outside of the posh Manhattan store.
Since the birth of her first child with hubby, R&B superstar Jay-Z, many have speculated on their daughter’s unique name. The Bootylicious singer recently posted a poem on her website by Rebecca Solnit called A Field Guide to Getting Lost, offering some insight into the origins of Blue Ivy.
The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the end blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us. It disperses among the molecules of the air, it scatters in the water. Water is colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue.
The sky is blue for the same reason, but the blue at the horizon, the blue of the land that seems to be dissolving into the sky, is a deeper, dreamier, melancholy blue, the blue at the farthest reaches of the places where you see for miles, the blue of distance. This light does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is in the color blue.
