ACCORDING to Dr. Angelou

I’ve not done this before.  This post has nothing to do with Hong Kong,  just me.

An author, poet, scholar, activist, actress, singer…    Dr. Maya Angelou, my inspiration and mentor, died today.

When learning of this earlier today, my mind immediately filled with some of her words of wisdom.  Words that are as much a part of me as anything can be.  She was full of herself, which inspired me most.

If you haven’t heard of this great lady until today, let me introduce her.   In her words…

And this next one put her on my map.  I took notice then and still do every day, as I have this framed on my desk…

Hi. Welcome to Hong Kong… according to Ken. Me! I’m a Texas guy that now lives in Hong Kong. I left my life as I knew it, to start a new life. One filled with unfamiliar sites, languages, foods, smells, culture and people. This “leap of faith” is still leaping, but I’m beginning to see the ground beneath me. If you ever wondered what it would be like to pack your bags, say good bye to everyone you know, jump on a plane to another world- then get ready. Here’s a look at life in Hong Kong… according to Ken.
