Featuring *SK* and Fashiowl Poses
I love the movie The Color Purple and usually end up watching it whenever I am flipping channels and find it on. I have so many favorite parts and love the characters but my most favorite scenes are ones that revolve around Shug Avery.
There is a scene where she is singing at the juke joint and hears the singing coming from the church where her estranged father preaches and proceeds to walk down a dirt lane to the church singing God Is Trying To Tell You Something. She bursts through the doors, singing and has a much longed for reconciliation with her father. It’s my favorite scene and I am in tears at the end of it, every time. You can watch it yourself here.
She also has a line towards the end of the movie that has always stuck with me and is appropriate for this photo. In a conversation with the other female characters she says “I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don’t notice it.” Today, and everyday, I hope you all take a moment to slow down, pause and notice the beauty around you.
