Celebrating the Open Heart that Was Maya Angelou

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
 Maya Angelou (1928-2014)

"What stories are you carrying inside you that are yearning to be freed onto the page? What stories are you carrying inside that, once freed onto the page, will also free you? Whatever they are, write one of them. Now. Write that story, your story, and feel the gift of healing freedom that all creative acts inspire."
