Did you know?

Dr. Maya Angelou had over 30 honorary degrees but never actually went to college.

Happy Rainy Thursday Friends, here’s to the truth that there are unexpected paths to everywhere and ┬áright now, someone, somewhere is reinventing how to do something.

“The birth of my son caused me to develop enough courage to invent my life.” Maya Angelou, Letters to My Daughter

This is one of my favorites. She wrote it when she turned 80, as a sort of epilogue to her previous biographies. Its a treasure and a great great gift. ‘Tis wedding season friends, and you might just know a bride-to-be who’s going to need some Maya Angelou much more than a Magic Bullet, I mean…don’t we all?

Grateful today for beautiful lives and brave words.

    You know I’ve been depressed since hearing the news. Oh Maya, how we will cling to your wisdom in our grief.
