New revelations about self are daunting: an interview of Maya Angelou in which she told tales of her mother's fierce anger for protecting "Self" and her selflessness in supporting her child and her loving response in welcoming Maya when she returned home. Ahh, the love of a good mother; we should all be that lucky. My son wasn't that lucky, but he was luckier than I. I wish I could breath into him the parts I didn't know I lacked: There should be responsive, assured indignation at any maligned comment from anybody. Know where the line is and defend yourself!
