Dr. Angelou then recalls a moment when she was 22 years old, walking down the street with her mother, and Vivian said nine words that would change her daughter’s life. “She said, ‘I think you’re the greatest woman I’ve ever met,’” Dr. Angelou remembers. “She said, ‘Mary McLeod Bethune. Eleanor Roosevelt… You’re in that category.’… I thought, ‘Suppose she’s right. Suppose I really am going to be somebody.’”

“Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.”

I learned yesterday that when you see a bee on the ground that isn’t moving, it’s not necessarily dead, it’s probably just dead tired from carrying lots of pollen and needs re-energising. So if you mix a tiny bit of water with some sugar and let it drink it will give it the boost it needs to continue on its way. Bizarrely, this exact thing happened today! I found a knackered bee, mixed up some sugar water, gave it a drink and watched it guzzle and guzzle then suddenly come back to life. It was amazing! Thank you patrick, it was an excellent tip that i’ll never forget and will continue to pass on to others!
