It used to be green. My father's favorite color is green and I think the natural desire to be like our fathers influenced my decision. Green would remind me of nature. Mostly leaves and grass, which may play a role in my constant desire to be outdoors. My father is a smart man, and I've always looked to him for guidance, and felt that if green is his favorite color, there must be a reason for it and I wasn't going to make a bad decision, so I went with green. After all, the smartest man I know was affiliated with the color. He's in the twilight of his life now, past his prime and living out his days taking care of others and meandering around his home in the middle of nowhere. My favorite color is purple.
