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."

Oh yes, just one extra hour means so much. Why can't we have it every day?

But if you spent it all blogging, I do not consider that a waste. People have always kept journals -- it's good for your mind and soul, and it's great writing practice. Blogging is journalling plus conversation. No wonder it's addictive.

It requires a lot of restraint not to spend the whole day blogging. I don't actually blog myself -- I'm just a blog-visitor -- but it's similar. It does have to be limited, but so does exercise and socializing and all other healthy enjoyable activities.

So don't feel guilty for blogging amba -- it's healthy and it's writing practice.


Thanks, real . . . wise words.
