Help! I don't know what kind of plant I have

I have a plant that has one "stalk" or trunk and seems like some kind of palm. It's indoor in a small pot and it has 9 variegated leaves at the top only. The leaves are pointed and somewhat thin. I don't know how to post a picture on this site so if someone can respond via e-mail that would be great. Thanks!

Hi Serre. Compare your plant to images of Tradescantia zebrina, and Tradescantia fluminensis. Hard to tell from that picture. In the future, more people will see your message and pic if you start a new discussion for it.

Serre,

I agree. Like Purple says, it is a Wandering Jew (or as they call it in my local Craigslist, "Wondering Jew", LOL!)
