Remembering Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou is the beautiful soul whom I never stop quoting. 

The breadth and depth of her experience qualified her to be the star she was.

I came across an interesting fact about her death in 2014. Her son said she suffered from heart problems and pain caused by dancing.

I salute the soul who could dance at the age of 86 … she certainly knew “why the caged bird sings” and the peacock dances.

I wonder how many saw her soul rise up and above that day. I see her as the brightest guiding star whenever  night falls.


Information about Maya Angelou’s books is available on her website.
