The Color Purple

Sometimes, a book whispers from my library shelf.

Coming in from outside, where crocus loosen among piled leaves in my narrow front bed, I heard, "Listen, God love everything you love -- and a mess of stuff you don’t. But more than anything else, God love admiration . . . Not vain, just wanting to share a good thing. I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it." (Alice Walker's The Color Purple)

Today, I share crocus purple and Walker's words.
