Author Maya Angelou has passed away at the age of 86. On any given day, the newsfeed on my Facebook page will see a few repeat stories as friends of mine share each other’s posts or find the same things interesting, but today… today it is a flood of stories about Angelou’s death. Not many authors touch so many lives, or live such a colorful life themselves.
If you’re having a hard time with your writing, if life is getting in the way, if your priorities are at war, if daily existence drags along… pick up one of Maya Angelou’s books. Spend a few minutes reading her obituaries. Watch an interview or two. She inspires by example, and shares her thoughts and wisdom with great generosity. She will be missed.
