003 Gems 4.86 TGIForfatter

T.G.I.Forfatter (writer)

(23 June 2018)

Did you know that Norwegian is the only language that I know in which the word “writer” starts with a letter “F.”  I looked, as you can see by the extensive list below!  Thus it is the only language I could use yesterday to fit our “TGIF: What It Really Means” category. I love the beauty and diversity of these languages.  I apologize about the confusion.  This is a next day edit to explain! Our contributing homeless artists write beautiful poetry and I believe could sell their works, if they were so inclined.  Johnny O’s poems have been shared on television in Denver and he belongs to a vibrant and very hip writers group there.  Cord’s poetry and photos are exquisite, each one a work of art.  So I wanted to encourage Cord, Johnny and anyone who has the courage to “sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”

“Any writer worth his salt writes to please himself…It’s a self-exploratory operation that is endless. An exorcism of not necessarily his demon, but of his divine discontent.” – Harper Lee

“Writing eases my suffering . . . writing is my way of reaffirming my own existence.” – Gao Xingjian

“I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.” – Flannery O’Connor

“I just knew there were stories I wanted to tell.” – Octavia E. Butler

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  If you get a moment, please send a prayer and/or good thoughts for two beautiful creatives souls and under1000skies’ artists, Johnny O who hasn’t been seen in a couple of weeks, and my son Ben Archer, missing since March 2, 2016.   ♡  Thank you.
