#IWSG The loss of a phenomenal woman

A huge thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh for starting IWSG. If you’d like to be supported as a writer then this group is for you. Click on Alex’s name to join. 
The co-hosts for this week are C. Lee McKenzie, Tracy Jo, Melanie Schulz,and LG Keltner! 


The world lost a great woman last week, Dr. Maya Angelou. I wonder if a woman who was so profound in her writing ever felt insecure. If she did then she squashed it and moved forward with the quickness. A wonderful example to all.

Here she is reading one of my favorite poems. May she rest in peace.

  6. I used the first stanza of "Phenomenal Woman" as my Monday quote. She really was a wise woman.
