Excuse my rusty writing hand...

Last night I went to a lecture given by Maya Angelou, and it was uplifting
and exciting.  That woman had wisdom, a sense of humor, and lots of
attitude.  She was herself and totally unapologetic about it.

I dread attending "New Agey" groups because of the pious atmosphere.  It's
usually in such atmosphere that I feel my "shadow", horns and goatee
growing, and evil mischievousness.  I would rather hang out with people who
are totally themselves and see the sacred in them.  Oh well, maybe I would
never be in a spiritual group, only in the spiritual group of mankind.
Now, I bet HPB would be one interesting woman to observe.
