THE PHENOMENAL WOMAN HAS LEFT US

Maya Angelou died earlier today. I am sad, but she was 86 years old and lived a life full of hardships and honors.

  2. I heard about Maya Angelou's death this morning. She was an incredible woman. The world has lost a great mind.

    Like you, I am very sad also.

    1. This isn't a loss that I'll forget about in a couple of days. I'm sure I'll talk about her for the rest of my life.

    2. Much like Nelson Mandela. I shall never forget him either.

  3. Hi Janie,

    Such a phenomenal lady. She will be missed but never forgotten. She was one of the main stories on the news in Britain.

    Have a peaceful day, my new friend. Glad to have made your acquaintance and my mug is now linked into your site.

    Gary :)

    1. Hair people are helpful that way. Sam, who cares for my golden tresses, always explains "young people" things to me, like YOLO. I had no idea what it meant, and I quite often forget to Google such things.

  7. She was a force for good to be reckoned with and she will certainly be missed.

  8. The world is a poorer place without her, but a richer place because of who she was.
