R.I.P ART SIMPSON – ONE OF OURS
Last year, I was introduced to a young man by his aunt who told me he was a talented kid, loved to write and that he simply needed some guidance. I opened my doors to him, encouraged him, worked with him -he wrote two pieces for 1200Dreams. He was pleasant. Big smile. And he could actually write well.
It lasted only a short while however. He disappeared and I never heard from him again. Until now. Art Simpson committed suicide last week.
I know I have a dream, 1200 of them but, I remember and appreciate every one of the people that I cross paths with on this journey, especially those that contribute to it. Art did that and he’ll always be remembered here at 1200Dreams.
I send my condolences to his family, especially his mother. No parent should have to bury there child. And for Art’s spirit, I pray. May the angels finally help rellieve you of whatever ailed you. Rest in peace bro.
