InSPIRITation ~ Honoring Alice, Honoring Zora

Alice Walker

Alice Walker

Today, which was a lovely Spring day, my muse nudged me to sit down with an Alice Walker book I had recently purchased called “In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens:  Womanist Prose.”  I read through the table of contents to find a title of a piece that jumped out.  I saw that Alice had written two pieces about Zora Neale Hurston, who is most famous for her book, “Their Eyes Were Watching God.”  However, Alice wrote about a book that I have access to but have never read before called “Mules and Men”, which Zora speaks boldly about the African-Haitian tradition of Voodoo (Vodun) in the novel.

While I haven’t read any of Zora’s novels (not one…not yet), I feel a kinship with her…like she’s a kindred spirit.  According to Alice’s piece, Zora was the type of woman, when she wanted to know something, she really dug deep to get as much information as she could about whatever she was interested in.  I find myself being the same way.  She immersed herself in the culture of her people of the African diaspora.  I’m on this path as well.  And she was a writer….yes, me too!  Now, I must admit, I am not as bold as she in my writing….not yet, but I’m on my way.

Zora Neale Hurston

Zora Neale Hurston

The first time I heard of Zora Neale Hurston was a quote an African-American writer used in her book by Zora, which said, “Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.”   I came across this around 1996 or 1997.  I was a couple of years into pursuing writing as a career path.  I clung to this quote.  Something about it made my soul want to crawl out from its hiding place.

So even without knowing Zora’s work, I was introduced to one of her philosophies in life, which is just as sweet an introduction.

I am deeply moved by the poetry of Alice Walker…

She is a shining light to me.  I am so grateful she is still alive and pray that before she moves on to her next experience, I get a chance to meet her.

Alice’s poetry is like water.  It ebbs and flows in the same manner as the ocean.  For I have watched the ocean ebb and flow.  I watched her move back and forth as the Sun moved from East to West.  I have watched her (the ocean) commune with her beloved, Moon as she moved from West to East bringing in the tides of the darling Ocean.  This is where Alice Walker’s poetry takes me.

My Favorite Book by Alice

My Favorite Book by Alice

My favorite book by Alice is called “A Poem Traveled Down My Arm.”  I have read that book over twenty times (seriously) ever since I bought it in the early 2000′s when it came out.  I read a little while sitting in a Books-A-Million in my hometown; next thing I know I had read the entire book in one sitting.  Immediately, I took it to the counter and paid for it.  I have been reading this book ever since.  I bought some other books by her and will get to them all, but that book of poems i mentioned above…Wow!!!!

I pray to be such a poet, such a writer, such a dreamer, such a thinker, such a woman as these goddesses.
