daily vanilla: oh, that wonder that is Maya Angelou!

Dear Reader,

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,
Jessica
