Yes…M A Y A. A N G E L O U. Her very own name is poetry.
Despite the fact that we sat in the nosebleed section of the theater, she was positioned directly in front of me, sending energy in a direct line up to the balcony. She wore dark glasses and a long red dress and tapped her foot slowly as she read her poetry to 2,800 people:
Health-food folks around the world
Are thinned by anxious zeal,
They look for help in seafood kelp
(I count on breaded veal).
-from The Health-Food Diner
It’s hard to summarize an experience with Maya, one of the world’s most inspirational people and leaders. In the 60 minutes that she spent with us, she gave us a message…loud and clear. Some might even go so far as to say that she gave us the meaning to life: Be the rainbow in somebody’s cloud and find the mystical in the mundane and life will always be abundant.
