There's Only One You ..... and a very special woman!

"Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told:
 "I'm with you kid. Let's go."
                                                Maya Angelou
new year - new wishes
new beginnings - new hopes
because there's only one you!
wherever you might be!
and then there's my very special lady...
Maya Angelou
"If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, 
you will have succeeded."
"Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, "I'm going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that's tough. I am going to snow anyway."

Maya Angelou
We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.
We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.
                                Maya Angelou
