Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

It's heartwarming to know that even a martial arts grande dame like yourself sometimes has to force herself to work out. Most days I'd rather read a book than do the tai chi form, and that's a gentle and calming exercise. ("Idle reading" is one of the most insidious obstacles in the path of the practitioner, according to Tsung-Haw Jou's THE DAO OF TAIJIQUAN.)


Well, he sure had our number!

Hint? Reading (wonderful as it is) is a way of not being present.
