Quotable Poet July 2014 Quote of the Month

Quotable Poet July 2014 Quote of the Month

“At some point, a flash of sustained clarity reveals the difference between what someone would have you believe is true, and what you know from the depths of your own heart to the peaks of your soul to be true. What happens after that is up to you.” –– Aberjhani, from Putting Text and Meaning to the Guerrilla Decontextualization Test (courtesy of BrainyQuotes)

Readers on Goodreads will be in the best position to get answers from the Quotable Poet about his writings during the June 30 – July 3 Q&A. But they’re not the only ones who can participate since the QP announced on his FB page that anybody interested can also submit questions for the Q&A through his “Contact the Author” page on the Bright Skylark Literary Productions website:

Here at the Quotable Poet we want to ask… What do you consider yourself to be the most when it comes to writing, a poet or a fiction and nonfiction prose writer?

That’s a legit question because when you look at the list of published books on Goodreads and Amazon, they’re almost exactly 50/50, with half of them poetry collections and half of them fiction or creative nonfiction. You can take it even deeper than that when you look at the works themselves and see that his novel and memoir contain both prose and poetry.

Plus the quotes in the new book, Journey through the Power of the Rainbow Quotations from a Life Made Out of Poetry, come from more than just poetry sources. It’s also legit because different search engines describe him in different ways. Some put “Author” first, some say “Columnist”, some say “Poet”, some say “Historian” and some say “Artist.” So what does the QP say?

We have to give props to the peeps at BrainyQuote and Share Images for this month’s quote art graphic. Not only is the leopard in the background a seriously cool cat for real but the text comes from one of the QP’s uncollected essays, “Putting Text and Meaning to the Guerrilla Decontextualization Test.” How many out there take time to do their own original research and produce original quality excerpts? Not a whole lot. Maybe somebody should ask the QP about that at the Q&A but there’s good chance he won’t have any answers because he spends too much time writing to keep up with quote websites.
