An Evening with Maya Angelou

UPDATE: Go to my friend Christy's blog to see her thoughts on the event.
Last night I had the privilege of enjoying a lecture given by Maya Angelou. Her message was inspiring and her stories, songs and poems were entertaining. What made the evening even better was attending it with my good friend and some of her students.

Angelou challenged the audience to "be a rainbow in someone's clouds" and to remember and appreciate those that have been rainbows in our clouds. I'm thankful for the opportunity to have attended what I would call a great cultural event. And, I only had to travel 15 minutes to the campus of West Texas A&M University in Canyon to do it. The Panhandle offers numerous cultural opportunities if we'd just take the time to seek them out. (I'm attending CATS on Sunday--yay!)

Wow. What an experience. I would love to hear her speak. You're a wise woman to take advantage of the opportunity.

Granny Sue--If you ever get a chance to hear her, you should go. I was amazed--she is 81 and did not refer to any notes. I could go on and on...

my all time favorite Maya quote is this: "You did what you knew how to do, and when you knew better, you did better."
