Cryptoquote Solved – 12/20/22

Playwright Nambi E. Kelley to Pen Phenomenal Woman: Maya Angelou with Eye  for Broadway | Broadway Buzz | Broadway.com

You can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles three things:  a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Rainy says never bothered me.  I did my share of untangling Christmas tree lights growing up.  Not sure if I have the patience for that anymore.  But lost luggage could really irk me, depending on the contents.  And depending on whether it was the trip’s onset, or the return trip.  If there was something valuable in the luggage, or even just souvenirs, I’d be pretty pissed.  But if it’s just dirty laundry I could probably handle that much better.  I’d hate to lose a favorite shirt though!  These Crypto people need to do a better job of disguising Maya Angelou’s name.  It became my code, and made the solve very easy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou - Audiobook - Audible.com:  English

A bird does not sing because it has an answer; it sings because it has a song.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Maybe . . . the song is the answer?  If it pleases you there’s no need to ask any more questions.  We saw Maya the other day in the Celebrity Cipher, quoting Margaret Mead.  And, it was neither one’s birthday!  A little strange.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Over 20,000 People Want to Rename the High School Maya Angelou  Attended—After Her | Glamour

When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Strange quote.  I don’t think I agree with this.  But this made for a very quick solve.  The E was easy to spot, and the author’s name kind of jumped out at me.  Not so much with today’s Celebrity Cipher!  The quote wasn’t tough, but I’d never heard of the celebrity before.  An Italian actress who was Anthony Bourdain’s girlfriend.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Don’t look past or through people.  Make eye contact.  Give them the “S’up?” nod.  Smile at them.  Even with a mask on people can see it in your eyes, when you smile.  Pass on your positivity, and it will come back to you.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Maya Angelou, poet and author, dies at 86 - CBS News

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

Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.”   —   Maya Angelou

(Mostly common sense, but it’s also part of human nature for one partner to be a little more . . . devoted than the other.  Sure, it should be a two way street, but the traffic is usually a little slower going one way.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
