Woman on Subway

It wasn’t Monday or even a week-day morning. Everyone else in the subway car  was checking their e-mail, watching a video, listening to music or playing an online game. This woman was just deep in thought. The only person in the subway car that I could see that wasn’t detached from herself.

Shug: More than anything God love admiration.
Celie: You saying God is vain?
Shug: No, not vain, just wanting to share a good thing. I think it pisses God off when you walk by the colour purple in a field and don’t notice it.
