a shine of rainbows...




"I have been in Sorrow's kitchen and licked out all the pots. Then I have stood on the peaky mountain wrapped in rainbows, with a harp and sword in my hands." 
Zora Neale Hurston

I love that quote. It's interesting that she made Sorrow have a kitchen... like she's stirring up suffering on the stove. Why do you think she says she has a harp and a sword on the mountain? Is the harp like her writing?

emily, i agree - i love that first sentence about Sorrow's kitchen. and the last sentence, to me it just feels like she's describing joy - divine joy. perhaps, for her, a part of that was the joy of creating - i think artistic creation has some part of the divine nature inherent in it.

Rainbows - the sign of the promise ! Lovely shots.

The first line of that quote has very powerful imagery !
