Yes, you heard right.
Here’s why driving in bumper-to-bumper no longer troubles me:
• This. I’ve been passing the time with this. A two-part podcast conversation between Oprah and Maya Angelou.
In it, Maya shares advice she was given (among other amazing pieces of her life): “When you get, give. When you learn, teach.”
Think about that as a life philosophy. And how many countless choices we could be making to honor that mantra every day. And, what a beautiful connection we could create with humanity.
When I got to Part 2 of this podcast, I almost hit the car in front of me when she mentions a poem she wrote called Alone and then murmers a few lines.
Based on what I learned about Maya, I think she’d approve of this blog as a landing place for all of us who realize life is better when we decide to do it together. Whether giving or getting…learning or teaching. Nobody, but nobody Can make it out here alone.
