My site is purple. I just couldn't help it. Purple is my favorite color and I'm attracted to all things purple...lavender, purple clothing, bell-flowers, pansies. The only thing I've found that I don't like in purple is nail polish. Even the school where I work has purple as its logo color - lucky me!
I thought about designing my site in more neutral colors, but anything colorless seemed just too plain, and other colors just weren't me. I learned a lesson a long time ago from my dear friend Eric, who paraphrased the author Leo Buscaglia. If God created me to be a plum, but I try to be a banana because I think people like bananas or want me to be a banana, I'll never be a good banana; it's not what I was created to be. But I can be the best plum that God created me to be, once I accept that I am a plum. And plums are purple too!
