Happy Birthday, Maya Angelou

The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.

Maya Angelou

You can go here to read about one of my favorite living poets … one who’s birthday just happens to be TODAY!!!

Born in 1928, Ms. Angelou is most known for her autobiographical books, most notably her brave and honest, I Know Where the Caged Bird Sings.  She’s been nominated for the National Book Award, as well as, the Pulitzer.

Her poetry is stunningly lovely and startlingly honest.  I wish her great health and longevity, because in my mind, she may well be the original Dancing Bird.

I don’t know what we’d do without her.
