“Try to make it to 80!” /Mother Maya

I believe in transition.  I believe energy transforms into something else or somewhere else.  From that perspective,  the universe became stronger a year ago today when Maya Angelou transitioned.

This is one of my favorite photos of her.  She was 82 in this picture and praised her wisdom and the gift of life! I hope you enjoy her words  🙂  We love and miss you Mother Maya!

“82 is hot!  82 is fabulous!  I thought that the 60’s were good, I thought that the 60’s were the hottest ever! And then I got into the 70’s, what?! I loved the 70’s!  I thought well the 80’s, it’s going to be slowing down. Not! I’m writing a cookbook, I’m writing a new poem, a big poem! I’m writing music, I’m writing! I’m working! And I’m talking to you. The 80’s, try and make it! Try to make it to 80.” –   Oprah’s Master Class / Maya Angelou, 2011

      1. Every time I see it, I feel like I can do amazing things! 🙂 Love her face at the end of the video!

  1. I would definitely like to make it to 80, especially since I’m in a new chapter of life. I would like this chapter to grow and flourish, and for the entire chapter to play out and be read.
