Just go in the door after setting up for the Exhibition this weekend at Ally pally.
Friday’s blog a private peek, right?
Well I want to talk about Maya Angelou today.
She would have been 90 years old this week.
She was my shero.
She made me laugh, cry, think and learn.
What an inspirational woman, eh?
All woman, that woman.
I was sitting in the Glide Church in San Francisco many moons ago, when I lived there, and quite by chance Dr. Angelou was in the audience.
Well, the Reverend Cecile Williams – another man from whom I learned so much over years – handed the whole service over to her.
Invited her up to the front, and boom. I just couldn’t believe it.
My shero right there, in front of me.
She just filled the room for over an hour with her wisdom and poetry and life stories.
What a phenomenal human being.
To be in her presence was a privilege like nothing I have ever experienced.
She died a few years ago. But not in my memory.
I think of her often, of her words and sage thoughts.
Here’s my Maya Angelou quote for today:
To be present in all things and thankful for all things.
If I can live that every day, I shall be a much richer person for it.
Next week we will be in San Francisco,
and you absolutely KNOW where we will be on Sunday morning!
Love & Hugs,
