Writing Domino. Legendary Laureate.As Luvvie said so eloquently on her Instagram: “She's gone but her words are immortal. Long may her work reign. We hail you, Queen. 88 years on this Earth and your work is done but your impact is just beginning. That is a life well-lived. May we all use our gifts to light up the world.”That is why this tribute was created, to help us all realize how amazingly bright our light can be when we use it for the greatest good and why it is our responsibility to do so, now.Follow @Luvvie everywhere on social – Instagram, Facebook, Twitter.
