For most of my life, my favorites were red and orange. When I turned 50 and left my then husband, I found myself attracted more and more to purple and very bright pinks. At 60, I dropped pink and added green and gray. So now, my favorite colors are purple, green, and gray. Oddly, as a child and young adult, I strongly disliked green.

I wonder if age or maturity affects the colors we prefer.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
