In February I had my left shoulder replaced so while I'm in recovery I have been reading a lot (Netflix too). In "A House of My Own: Stories from My Life" by the Mexican American writer Sandra Cisneros there is a chapter about painting her house in San Antonio, Texas purple, and the community reactions to this choice.
In this piece she says "Color is a language....a story....an inheritance. !Que Vivan los Colores!" I agree for sure.
