Day 5 , November 2, 2016— All Soul’s day Greetings! The string of festivities continue with today being significant in the Roman Catholic calendar as ‘All Soul’s day’. A day to remember, contemplate, celebrate the presence of those (especially Relatives) who have passed on. My practise this morning was dedicated to the memory of my Maternal Grandfather. I remember him as a magical storyteller and a life Artist. A person who loved the Arts especially drawing and was instrumental in developing in me a sense of curiosity across both the scientific and artistic worlds. To celebrate the gifts we have received from all those no longer with us and to our continued creativity here is an excerpt from a poem by Dr Maya Angelou
Poem — Excerpt from “Inaugural Poem” by Maya Angelou
Mold it into the shape of your most
Private need. Sculpt it into
The image of your most public self.
Lift up your hearts
Each new hour holds new chances
For new beginnings.
