This week, prolific writer and activist, Maya Angelou, passed away.
Much has already been said about her and her work. She was undoubtably a wonderful writer, but I have always preferred to hear her speak. There’s no better way to see personality and wisdom shine through.
She was inspiring not just because she was a very accomplished woman of color, but because she lived boldly and poetically, always open and encouraging.
My favorite quote by Dr Angelou is: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Beautifully said. RIP.
This week, I’m also lovin’:
