She shared so much of her wisdom and we needed it ... but we know she still had so much more wisdom to share

May her peace be complete




It's time we make the mistakes and go through experiences to gain something that we can give to the world. The old world is dying. And. The new one is breathing life so let's gain new experiences and new cultural practices.

I was just reading about her in O's What I Know for Sure column last night. She said Maya was a great role model for what getting older can be. She taught us so many lessons. What a woman, what a treasure.

Rest.

RIP Phenomenal Woman

Maya, gave me words to live by;

“The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them.” 
― Maya Angelou

I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.” 
― Maya Angelou


“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” 
― Maya Angelou

“I do not trust people who don't love themselves and yet tell me, 'I love you.' There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.” 
― Maya Angelou

“When you know better you do better.” 
― Maya Angelou

“Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.” 
― Maya AngelouPhenomenal Woman: Four Poems Celebrating Women

I'm so in my feelings, I remember reading her poems for the first time and discovering the meaning of rhythm and poetry. I understood what it meant without ever hearing the words spoken aloud. I was a child then and I wanted to write like her when I grew up.

Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery Unveils Portrait of Maya Angelou!

Posted on April 7, 2014

This weekend on April 5, 2014 I had the pleasure of attending the unveiling of Dr. Maya Angelou's portrait at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC. The painting marks the I Know Why a Caged Bird Sings author's 86th birthday. It was such an amazing experience and she was nothing but the truth. Below are a few photos and videos:
