Becoming Orange

I've always been a dark, red-toned type of gal.  The color of my sign and my personal favorite color were one in the same: blood red; it fit me perfectly.

I never had much taste for the brighter hues in the spectrum.  I remember trying to wear a bright yellow top as a teen; I just couldn't pull it off.  The color wasn't me.  There was nothing bright, sunny, and happy about me.  I disliked hot pinks, bright blues, neon greens, sunny yellows, and mind-numbing oranges.  Orange, most of all, didn't sit well with me; I always listed it as my least favorite color.

I did like the softer tones of these colors, but still none of them moved me like the deep, dark nearly-smothering intensity of a deep, dark red.

In the last year, I started liking the color orange.  A lot.  You may have noticed - my website went the way of the fruit, as did my MySpace page and this blog.  I loved orange - loved, loved, loved the warm, soothing colors of pale to neon-bright orange!

What had happened?  I know taste buds change with age, but your preference in color?  There was a time I would never be caught dead with the color orange on my person - and you certainly wouldn't find me using it in my web design!  Now, I can't get enough of the fun, inviting, fruity color!

I'm still trying to figure out just what it means.  As I step into 2007, preparing to make the jump into the big 3-0, I find myself changing - maturing and growing, if you will - in so many ways.  I've given up my beloved, cynical blogs aimed at sucky celebrities and their suckier fans for more positive, and uplifting labors of love such as Love My Gut and a blog for Bleeding Out The Pain (my current in-the-works projects).  I find myself desiring to eat healthier, take better care of my body, do more for my self and well-being as well as for the world at large and for our society.

I'm sure that's looking pretty deeply into a favorite color change, but for those who know me - turning into a lover of orange isn't some minor change in personality.  I think it signals a change, and I feel...I really do...that it's going to be a great one.
