The world lost a remarkable voice on Wednesday with the passing of poet Maya Angelou.  She leaves us with a legacy of work from which to draw inspiration and guidance.  My first exposure to her work was through a college roommate in the late ’80s.  Personally, I find her work even more engrossing when read by the author.  Her turn of a phrase has an intoxicating rhythmic quality that boosts my morale on even the lowest days.  She will be missed but her gifts to the world are eternal.

If you want to share your thoughts on Maya Angelou’s legacy feel free to do so in the comments.  We will also be discussing our May reading selection:
