Wherever i have knocked a door has

In my development as a human being and as a writer I have been, it seems to me, extremely blessed, even while complaining.Wherever I have knocked, a door has opened.  Wherever I have wandered, a path has appeared.I have been helped, supported, encouraged, and nurtured by people of all races, creeds, colors, and dreams; and I have, to the best of my ability, returned help, support, encouragement, and nurture.  ~Alice Walker, In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens (Acknowledgments)TPV
