I woke up to the news of Maya Angelou’s passing this morning, and felt compelled to share one of my favorite poems of hers here. She was such a wise, beautiful soul; I never met her, but was and continue to be inspired by her & her work. Her words were simple and profound, and I’m so grateful for this woman’s work and legacy. Thank you, Ms. Angelou, and Rest In Peace.
