In a 1997 Interview (America’s Renaissance Woman) in High Point NC, when asked ‘when she realized she had talent’ Maya Angelou said in her answer:
I believe that each of us comes from the Creator trailing wisps of glory. So at this wonderful, young age of 65, I don’t know yet what the Lord has for me to do. I try to live up to the energy and to the calling, but I wouldn’t dare say I have even scratched the surface yet.
- The poet, author, and storyteller passed away yesterday at the age on 86 in North Carolina.
