purple“i am an expression of the divine, just like a peach is, just like a fish is. i have a right to be this way…i can’t apologize for that, nor can i change it, nor do i want to… we will never have to be other than who we are in order to be successful…we realize that we are as ourselves unlimited and our experiences valid. it is for the rest of the world to recognize this, if they choose.” ~ alice walker, the color purple
