Late Night Trip : Blaise Cendrars & AcentOh


Thinking about that picture AcentOh sent me a month ago, sharing his readings with me. Reminding me about Blaise Cendrars, whom I haven't heard since decades. 

Learning that he was not only a poet but also a writer and that he compiled those oral tales from Africa (I haven't found yet from which countries exactly) because he actually considered it was "Littérature", back in 1921. 

Reading that he lost his right arm during First World War and then had to learn to write again with his left hand... 

Realizing how interesting has been his life but also that it's almost 2 am and that I might as well have some sleep instead of wikipeding compulsively jumping from one link to another. 

Shout out to my hermanito @acentoh and Blaise. 

Thanks to both of you guys for the late night trip and the learning.
