From Dr. Larry

Dr. Larry Gelman is fiercely devoted to each client, with a deep and profound respect for their own self-agency and self-determination.

32 Edits

I recently wrote a very short article which required 32 edits.

My written work, I thought, was substandard and the message, I thought, was unclear.

When I write, consistent excellence is my minimum standard and my point must be sharp and penetrating...

Unless, “journalistic license” wins-out and I choose to implicate my meaning by intentional design.

All works of art, I suspect, are perceived, interpreted and experienced in the subjective eye of each beholder.

My writings, much like a famous inkblot test, provide the reader a standing invitation to see whatever they wish to see.

It is not my intent to intend at all unless, of course, I intend, otherwise!

My avowed goal is to always aim high and to always do my best.

In reality, the aggregate result at the end often falls far short of the mark in spite of my most earnest efforts.

No matter the reasons, none suffice, because it is the end result by which I am to be judged and will judge myself.

How I get there is extremely important and falls within the “context of discovery”.

To not accept any written work which is substandard and, especially, where the message is unclear...

Undoubtedly communicates volumes about the character and lived-values of the associated author.

However, I think what I should never take personally, is the end result.

This, too, is extremely important and falls within the “context of justification.”

To not accept any written work which is substandard and, especially, where the message is unclear...

Undoubtedly communicates volumes about how results, in the end, are derived, obtained and utilized.

However, I think what I should always take personally, is the success or failure of the end result.

In the end, there is failure or success; in the extreme life or death.

Sometimes, I believe that my writings will be the death of me!

It is not something that I have any particular talent for but it does make me smile every once in a while.

Yet, so long as there remains life in me and a bit of sweet breath...

My avowed goal is to always aim high and to always do my best.

And to realize that the “fruits of my labors” are inextricably interwoven within the tapestry of the end result...

Of my quixotic quest to write all my wrongs, literary, though they may be...

My writings, much like a famous inkblot test, provide the reader a standing invitation to see whatever they wish to see.
