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."

OMG, I'm one of those people Anne Lamott, one of my very favorite authors, tells you to hate. I love to write! You know that old saying, "Find work that you love and you'll never work another day in your life"? Writing is the work that I love; the work that I would rather be doing than anything else. Yes, I get tired, and somethings I feel blocked, but I always know that's temporary and never quit believing that writing is FUN. One of my goals in life is to help other people find the FUN and the flow in the writing process.

SARK is my soul sister, though we've never met. (If you don't know about SARK, google her and you'll see what I mean.)

Oh, what a shame, that Anne Lamott is going to have to hate a die hard fan!


Pssst . . . it isn't really hate. It's envy.

Pennish envy?
