It feels strange to be in a world that does not contain a living, breathing Maya Angelou. Bless her family and friends, their heartache is palpable. I love Maya Angelou’s novels and poetry, I read them all and loved them all. I have reread many of them and found just as much solace and direction as the first time. Maya Angelou will be greatly missed.
