I was never that girl who had to have pink everything. In fact I wanted pink nothing! I’m the Orange Plume because orange has always been the color that feels most like home to me. It’s a color with myriad of associations that I embrace: enthusiasm, fascination, creativity and determination (Wikipedia). The idea of writing with a plume is a romantic notion for me–traditional and beautiful. Hence, the Orange Plume.
I’ve discovered that life’s clichés aren’t always such a bad thing. I’m a wife and mother in the suburbs and I’ve never been happier. I’m an American Girl from Generation X raised in the upper Midwest, but a proud Colorado transplant as of 2005. A little like orange, Colorado has always felt like home to me. I’m happily married to an enigmatic man (since 2000!) and the mother of boy/girl twins. I am also an identical twin so I have a lot to say on the topic of twins. I’ve been a follower of Christ since I was 7 and love to explore spiritual topics.
I may occasionally wear pink but some things never change. I’ve been a writer at heart since the age of eight. The old adage: If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there, did it still make a sound–reminds me of the heart of a writer: If a writer wrote and no one read his work, does it matter that he wrote? I write because I must.
It is my hope that you will find some things within these printed “pages” that will move, inspire, or provoke thought and friendly dialogue.
