The world is stuffed with beauty

Take a look.

It's all there, waiting for us to notice. In my favorite scene from "The Color Purple," Celie and Shug are walking in a field and talking about Faith and The Way Things Are. Shug, talking about God's wish to be in relationship with us, says, "I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it." So Celie asks what God does in the face of our heedlessness, and Shug answers that God makes something else people will see, because "It just want to be loved, like us."

What's purple to you today?
