Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Zora

Welcome back everyone, to another Writer’s Quote Wednesday segment, as hosted by Colleen of Silver Threading. Today,  I draw inspiration from Zora Neale Hurston, a name I’ve been hearing a lot this week:


Zora H

I’ve been reading this quote all week. Not because I’m a Hurston fan to that extent, but I have been studying her history pretty close (for a project I am not telling you about yet, don’t you just love secrets? lol hee hee )and this quote in particular keeps sticking out to me. There is so much here that I cannot begin to verbalize it all. In short, I’m at a place in my life where focus is priority. I feel really free right now with who I am. I would not say that I am content because to be content is to lose focus. Focus is loss when we think that we are where we are supposed to be and we stop striving. That said, I am not there yet; I would not say that I have reached my limit, I have a long way to go. But I do feel my faith is growing. Could be something in the air, a sense of urgency, or an alarm clock on my skin. In the meantime, I’ll just pull in the horizon like a fish net, and drape it around my shoulders.

  1. I really had to think about this quote. I feel like she is saying she has found some peace in her existence but she still feels the enormity of that existence. I love the phrase: “…Pulled it from the waist of the world and draped it over her shoulders.” I wonder if that is the “weight” of knowledge? I love your quotes. They always make me think and wonder! ❤

    1. Great thoughts Colleen! I would love to hear more thoughts on the meaning of this quote from others as well. I’m still on the “Pulled in her horizon like a great fish net” part. A horizon is the line where the earth or sea seems to meet the sky so this makes me think about new levels, and the power of purpose.
