Thank you for your words Maya Angelou

The world lost the most beloved of voices today, May 28, 2014.   If you were ever fortunate enough to hear Maya Angelou speak, then you know of what I write.

A famed poet, an enthralling orator.  A spectacularly loud voice spoken in hushed tones.  A truly great woman.

Rest in peace Ms. Angelou.  You, and your words, will be missed.

The following are some of her “tweets,” the most recent of which was posted just a few days ago:

“Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.”

Also, these gems:

“This a a wonderful day. I’ve never seen this one before.”  (My personal favorite I think.)

“We must be warriors in the struggle against ignorance.”   (SO TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“I have a certain way of being in this world, and I shall not, I shall not be moved.”

“I agreed a long time ago, I would not live at any cost. If I am moved or forced away from what I think is the right thing, I will not do it.”  (Amen sister.  Amen.)

There are so many other words that she has written and spoken through the years.  This is just the tip of the iceberg of the volume of her work.  She was truly a remarkable woman with an absolutely gorgeous voice.  Captivating.  Mesmerizing.

The world is a little bit quieter today for this loss.

Thank you Ms. Angelou for lighting our way.

Mother, Mad Ranchwife(as in--at times-- crazy, nutso, loco, off-my-rocker insane), Veterinarian, Physical Therapist, "Liberal, pinko, gay-loving, Subaru-driving Socialist" (as I've been called), proud to be a totally tree-huggin', climate change believin', granola girl environmentalist, ObamaGirl, Pro-Choice (don't even get me started here...), and in my younger days a feminist vegetarian as a result of time spent at CU Boulder (this lasted approximately 14 months, until all the Jimmy Buffett I was listening to caused me to crave a cheeseburger). Now I just get pleasure out of swimming against the stream and ruffling a few feathers here in the wild west state of Wyoming!
