Mom & Maya

Meet my mom, Anita!

I write a lot about her, because I lost her to terminal cancer at the end of 2009. Losing her changed my life in ways I still don’t understand. When the world lost Maya Angelou on May 28, 2014, it seemed fitting to make a video honoring them both.

First, my mom reads “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” then my mom’s memorial video showcases that reading.

BTW, I can’t stop laughing at what a HORRIBLE director I am to my own mother!!
