Nonetheless, in spite of big doubts, I wrote my “gratitude list” every morning. For a while, it worked. I got out […]
Last night, I dreamt I was alone with a scary, grubby man. He handed me a knife and said I had to kill his dog before I could go home. In horror, I scrambled to leave. But there was no way out! He took out a poison cookie and fed it to the dog. I […]
Dr. Maya Angelou: Her Latest Re-Invention (1928 – 2014) Here’s what the media deluge says: Maya Angelou passed. Stop the presses! She didn’t really die.
