Remembering Maya Angelou

in her own words  … 😍

Maya Angelou on 'being'

Maya Angelou on Maya Angelou

Writer, poet, civil rights activist …she was indeed an intelligent, courageous and loving woman who taught us by ‘being’ who she was without fear or apology.

We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains or swim the oceans – because we can.   We have some impulse within us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings. That’s why we paint, that’s why we dare to love someone – because we have the impulse to explain who we are.

    “We write for the same reason we walk, talk, climb…..” I love that line. Thanks, Ms. Rose.
