Okay, so I fully admit that I haven’t read much, if any, Goethe. (But I can say it with a cool German accent!)
Today’s quote was just something that made me smile, especially as the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) conference is coming up and I am bummed, yes, BUMMED about not going this year. This is soley because I’ve “met” so many of you cool CBA writers online and I WANT TO MEET YOU IN PERSON!
Okay, enough with my caps and exclamation points! I can’t stop using them!
But this quote isn’t just for my writer friends I don’t get to meet this September. It’s for every one of you loyal blog readers, who encourage me with every attempt I make to get my books published. It’s for every one of you kindred spirits. It’s for all you friends who make me feel we’ll always “pick up right where we left off.” Here we go…
“To know someone here or there with whom you can feel there is understanding in spite of distances or thoughts unexpressed–that can make this life a garden.”–Goethe
****How about you? Are you going to ACFW? Please mention my name to all the editors you see…just kidding. Seriously, I’ll miss seeing you, but I’m praying for all you attendees this year. I hope every one of you have some friends just like this, friends who are are a respite from the harshness of life–like a stroll through a cool garden at twilight.****
