The Nice Thing About Strangers

Creative Non-Fiction Short Stories. :) Travel, Oldsters, Love, and Compassion.

Book While You Can.

In fact most artists recognize their own weaknesses far better than the critics do. Only naturally there is no place for the public parade of this knowledge. If one is prepared to publish a work one must let it speak for itself. It would be unthinkable to run along beside it whimpering ‘I know it’s no good.’ One keeps one’s mouth shut.

Every book is the wreck of a perfect idea. The years pass and one has only one life. If one has a thing at all one must do it and keep on and on trying to do it better.

    What is best of all ….is WHAT you see in strangers! Keep going girl.

    • Thank you! 🙂 I appreciate how things sometimes just show up right in front of me, but it would be lovely one day to aspire to book-form.
