A LEGAL PAD OF THANKS


Poet and writer Maya Angelou told in an interview about an experience she’d had in the early 1950s. She had returned to the United States from Europe, leaving behind a child. She said: "One day I was very frightened for my sanity.... So I went to my voice teacher and told him I was going mad. He said, ’Here’s a yellow pad. Write your blessings.’ I said, ’Oh, please, I don’t want to even hear that. I’m going crazy.’ He said, ’Start with the fact that you can hear me, that you can see the page, that you can hold the pen.’ Before I reached the end of the page I was transformed. So, everything I have written, every book, every stage play, every screenplay, was written on a yellow pad. As soon as I pick it up, I am reminded of my blessings" (The Christian Science Monitor, October 20, 1993).
