She had a dignity and presence that communicated with some deep eternal part of me. She moved me. She helped me remember to be grateful for all the ancestors on whose shoulders we stand (Oprah Winfrey also reminds me of this).
Thank you, Maya Angelou, for your life and legacy. Thank you for reminding me how important it is to be authentic.
(Thank you artist, Merry Wilcox, for this beautiful mixed media piece I saw in the Dallas Area Fiber Artists show in Spring 2014).
