A Flower for Maya

The writers group I’m a part of went on a field trip last night. We traveled to another city to participate in an experiment.  The organizers still aren’t sure what to call it, but everyone agreed it was a success.

It was a night of art, artists, poetry, remembrance, much laughter, a few tears…oh…and wine.  Each person was encouraged to bring a favorite quote or poem by Maya Angelou to share with the group.

The art supplies came out and we were again encouraged to do whatever we felt like, whether to follow the instructor’s lead or go off on our own. This is mine. Done in 3 hours and a little shaky after a few drinks, the piece is fitting for my life and the blog.

Thank you, Dr. Angelou, for everything. ❤
