gratitude-a-thon day 347: h.b. maya angelou


Happy birthday to the exceptional and inspiring Maya Angelou, who  has written many a profound thing or two in her long life, but it was this, about aging, that is probably the funniest (she said it on an Oprah show back in ’02):

“And the breasts are very interesting,” Dr. Angelou says, the audience erupting in laughter. “Because they are in an incredible race to see which one will touch my waist first!”

Grateful for all of her spectacular writing (and, well, this).
