Happy Birthday, Alice Walker

"Writing to me is not about audience actually. It's about living. It's about expanding myself as much as I can and seeing myself in as many roles and situations as possible. Let me put it this way. If I could live as a tree, as a river, as the moon, as the sun, as a star, as the earth, as a rock, I would. Writing permits me to be more than I am. Writing permits me to experience life as any number of strange creations." (via The World Has Changed: Conversations with Alice Walker)

Happy Birthday, Alice Walker!
