"The prerequisite to being truthful to yourself is to feel connection with another. Simple, everyday stories we all experience should be written in simple, everyday language we all use. The best stories deal with the small concerns of life and you don't need fancy words for that. These stories tell us about the diversity and story-worthiness of ordinary people. They speak to our sense of closeness-and above all, to our spacious sense of possibility. It is extraordinary how extraordinary the ordinary person is. And even more extraordinary is the number of stories they are carrying around-waiting to be written."Gerry Di Gesu believes that man is inherently good, that God is a best friend who doesn't give answers, and that the beauty and order of nature are our greatest guides to sensibility and serenity. She knows there's a bright spot in most dark situations in life if we look hard enough, and that without a sense of humor, especially directed at ourselves, we do not survive.
