WHAT IS THE MEANING OF “GEM” ON UNDER1000SKIES?

A young man asked in a letter recently,

“What is the meaning of ‘Gem?” Please explain. I think a good quote is a Gem.”

It was great that he asked.  (Thank you, TH!)  In case you’ve ever wondered, here’s what I wrote in response (and have added to our “About Us” page):

A good quote is a Gem. A photo is a Gem. Poems are Gems. The Gems are especially precious because they are given to us out of kindness, and the ones we love the most have been from our homeless artists. Thank you for asking *hugs* ♥.

Special thanks to BlissForgive on Kindspring.org for sharing this quote in a story a few days ago.  “The So-Called Black Sheep.”

If you know any homeless artists who would like their poems, photos or art featured on under1000skies, on our social media accounts and through our email list, please pass on our information. Thank you!

We’re also always gratefully accepting photos, art, poems or quotes or any Gems anyone might want to share. Special thanks today and always to everyone who has shared these so generously over the years since we began.

Have a great weekend.
