Hi friends and fellow writers! My name is Brooke and I am so thrilled that you have found your way to my blog, colors of quiet (formerly, target verified). I started this blog during the darkest time of my life, and it has been a pleasure to write poetry for it through so many different seasons for over eight years now. I am currently a communications analyst for a civil engineering consulting company, and I have previously taught language arts in Honduras and also worked with adult and youth ESL students both online and in-person. I love reading historical fiction, playing with my cat, writing poetry, crocheting, watching Youtube movie commentaries, drinking coffee, and traveling when I can. I could talk for hours about mental health, personality types (MBTI and Enneagram), and Lord of the Rings. I am a Christian and want to know and love God better in my life and show others His love as well. I hope you are encouraged by what you read here, and thank you very much for stopping by!
