In search of an excellent writer…

There are several thousands of us operating in this space.

And given the degree to which our fight to be seen, heard and validated by our peers can get quite fierce, we often neglect the friends that we make along the way.

I must point out that I am incredibly guilty here.

A huge part of the beauty of writing here lies in the connections that we forge with each other and the stories that we tell.

And on the subject of stories, there aren’t very many that are as compelling as George Blue Kelly. Check out his page and you will understand why.

George Blue Kelly is a phenomenon.

Our protagonist is a powerful testament to man’s greatest instincts — our will to survive and reproduce ourselves.

And he has done both exceptionally well.

Yesterday, while I was looking for writers whom I hadn’t read in a while, my mind went straight to him.

I checked his page and found old articles of his.

And I also did notice that he hadn’t published in a while.

Given the worrier that I am, a number of questions ran through my mind: Is he okay? Is he alive and thriving?

How is life treating him with the current dispensation in Italy, now that a fascist is in charge of its affairs?

To be fair, he isn’t the only writer that I worry about.

I think about Kamga Tchassa too.

I hope that he is rebuilding his life after the events of 2020.

In the midst of the madness of trying to make a living, It is so easy to lose sight of those whose presence that we take for granted.

So gentlemen, please write an article or two to let us know how you are doing.

Believe it or not, your writing enhances our lives and your presence enriches us in every way.

Thanks very much for reading.
