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."

In a serendipitous result from a google seach i came across a link to this message. i have been fascinated by acupuncture for a long time, and loved the descriptions of the pulses i read many, many years ago in pearl buck's "the good earth"

my understanding of the meridians is that they are conduits for the flow of qi - or ch'i - a subtle, yet profound life force / energy that flows through all life in the universe

the practice of qi gong - especially if one holds the vision of the meridians as a conduit for qi - can help to cultivate a healthy flow of qi, and has the additional benefit that it can be practiced anywhere - alone or with others - at no cost, and with the expenditure of minimal energy: one can even practice qi gong mindful breathing exercises if one is confined to a bed or wheelchair.
