“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Maya Angelou

Thank you to those who attended Night Out With Meaning on Wednesday, May 28th.  A very special thank you to our storyteller, CheneAmelie Bates. Chene shared her personal story through passages from her journal, photos, music and her art.  What strikes me about Chene is how relateable her struggles are and how articulate and thoughtful she is as she shares her experiences. I have a huge amount of respect for Chene and what she has been able to overcome and accomplish.
I was reminded that Chene spoke on the day that Maya Angelou passed away.  So much of Angelou’s work is about overcoming, persevering, authenticity, creativity…how fitting to spend the evening together being inspired by a phenomenal woman’s story!

Night Out With Meaning is sponsored and hosted by harp-weaver LLC, the firm I founded to help individuals and families with their personal giving.

I look forward to sharing the next Night Out with you in November!
