The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.
~ Dante Alighieri
Words may show a man's wit, but actions his meaning
~ Benjamin Franklin
Friends are kisses blown to us by angels.
I like this one especially - The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality. ~ Dante Alighieri
Yes I rather like that quote too. Its what got us into this mess isn't it ? I was thinking about posting something along these lines, but I am glad Davide did all the work !
Have you made any further enquiries about publishing some of you work or are you just too busy?
Regarding the publishing of my material, the truth is that I do not have any money to invest in pursuing such a project and until I manage to find a paying job I think I will have to wait a few years before I can seriously pursue writing as a career. I am sort of at the mercy of my present circumstances and cannot make much progress due to my limitations. Om.
Hmmm: you do have enough excellent original material with royalty free colour plates that could be sent to a publisher for review, many writers start broke but someone at some point takes them on and provides a grant until publication when royalties are paid. You should not have to lay out money to have your work evaluated unless the rules have changed, just send in your material in the required format to a reputable and relevant publisher and wait for them to react. For example after I saw Jackie's comment I thought about you taking your Buddhist poetry coupled with royalty free plates and send to a Buddhist publisher (Snow Lion and Shamballa) for review both in US or in Asia. Worse that happens is nothing. Many writers and artists are also rejected first time, but there may be something here worth pursuing in parallel with your studies.
Let me know whether you wish to pursue this thought further or drop it and keep low profile for a bit. There is something fresh and unique about your expression that struck a chord with a few of us. You are really talented. PLUS: apply/USE the laws of manifestation !!! Make miracles happen. It could be your time and one day a few of us feel it WILL be your time.
That is a good idea. Thanks for encouraging me to pursue what I should be pursuing. I will look around the city where I live near by to see if there are any outposts where I can hand in my material.
