YOU CAN’T EVEN REALLY REGRET YOUR MISFORTUNES

This great clip is taken from an interview with the author of ‘The Color Purple,’ Alice Walker.

Her story reminds us that even what may appear to be terrible misfortune might bring unexpected blessings. She also talks about the importance of doing only what you love and ‘the mysterious wonder of life.’

To read more about her, and hear her talk about the writing of The Color Purple, check out Cate Russell-Cole’s post here.
