Dear Maya Angelou,
For the last few years, your life and your words really inspired me.
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
So, I’m getting my stories out of my system, mostly on my computer screen. Some of those stories make their way into my blog. One day, I’ll publish them as a book or two or three….
What I love about you is how unbroken you were despite serious childhood trauma. In your books I found a glimmer of hope: I can be whole despite what had happened. Thank you for inspiring so many women and showing what’s possible in this world if we are willing to show up and take risks. Thank you for being such a phenomenal woman!
P.S. By the way, your poem ‘Phenomenal Woman’ is my all times favourite.
With love and admiration,
