July 30, 2018: Body of Work

I’m really getting back in touch with Maya Angelou’s work lately. She was such an amazing storyteller and poet. Her poems were raw, spoken from someone who endured painful and powerful life experiences. I find myself turning to her work during times of great stress and hardship.

Maya’s poems were frequently used by Johanna and I when we ran groups. I feel like we drew from the strength her poetry always radiated on a regular basis. Using her guidance, we provided our clients with the emotional and spiritual support they were seeking.

Maya Angelou will always be a valuable poet to me. In the days ahead, I know that her poetry will be a source of support throughout the next few weeks.
