It is mere coincidence that my lovely daughter is named Maya. We didn't hamer her after anyone - not even Maya Angelou. But can I say how pleased I am that they share the same name? (and the same fire, I have a sneaking suspicion...)
I am a "friend" of Maya Angelou on FaceBook and she posted this little gem today:
"If you are going down a road and dont like what's in front of you and look behind you and don't like what you see, get off the road. Create a new path."
I am not sure what it is about this quote that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up so. I am sure there are many things...but today it's the confidence, the courage, the just be yourself godammit-ness of it all.
Your partner in clearcutting,
