"It's a shame that it's so hard for creatives to make a decent living from their art. Doing what you love is amazing, don't get me wrong - but paying bills, doing groceries and making rent is crucial to maintaining a headspace that allows you to create art. Artists should get paid at least as much as construction workers. Artists are just as (if not more) important than any carpenter, brick layer or plumber. You can build all the fantastic structures in the world...but at the end of the day - without artists - all you have are quiet car rides and tall grey buildings. And that's pretty fucking lame." ~ Tom MacDonald, whoismrmac.com
"Persistence and perspiration, innovation and inspiration, dedication and determination, brilliance and beauty, poetry and passion. A deep probe into the psyche of one of Canada's up and coming authors of prose." ~ Michael Boivin, B.Sc.
"Not everyone is entrusted to see within themselves that which they are trying to heal; especially through the art of words. One should have the honesty of internal site to see what the other is relating. In times of life there are no second takes. In times of life we paint what we feel through words and we write what we see. Gordon's statement wraps up what he has written which I have found quite enjoyable." ~ Michael "Cy" Cywink
"Writing and diamonds have something in common. They both have facets. Gordon inspects various facets of what it means to be a writer. Under his scrutinizing eyes, he finds hopes and doubts in the medium. Some of his observations, like the sides of a jewel, are clearer than others. However, what shines throughout Gordon's exploration is his love of words." ~ Bob McNeil, Writer and Spoken Word Artist, undergroundbooks.org/bob-mcneil.html
From the Author
"Despite his earlier publications, poet Gordon P. Bois was at a crossroads. Unable to decide whether he should give up the ghost or press onward in a new direction, Gordon dug deep down within himself with hope of attaining a resolution.Determined, he composed statements about the craft of writing and his relationship to it. The eventual outcome was an encouraging revelation. Onward and upward, Gordon, onward and upward, you shall go."
