Laura Lamarca will start with the NEW YEAR 2013 reporting and commenting about what she thinks is interesting, actual, beautiful, problematic or entertaining in her native country.

Laura Lamarca started writing poetry before and after the death of her husband.  This book, titled “From The Heart” was published in 2004 by rosedogbooks and written for her children.

I feel and think that Laura is a person full of energy and goodwill and is able to help others by her poetic work. Thats the real purpose of Johntext – literature with purpose to help. But read what she writes about her future plans:

“I dream one day of going to Africa to help in any way I can to improve the lives of innocent children who are suffering daily and hope to raise my poetic and creative voice to lead others. Any profits made from my writings will eventually go to feed those who can’t feed themselves.”

I have nothing to add. I am so glad and proud having found an author with the ability and possibility to feel the problems and the hunger and the pain in human beings without resigning but trying to find ways out of the darkness of the lasting problems of unlucky and by circumstances discriminated persons.

Anthony Cataldo – good friend


Anthony in Ladakh

You can find and buy some of his photos made in India on:

I first met Anthony in Ulm/ Germany. As far as I can remember it was around christmas time in 2003.

He begged for money in the street. He was reading a book. I thought: Oh who is this guy here sitting on the street…

I learned: Anthony comes every year to Ulm the month before and after christmas. He is living on the street for decades. I did not want to give him money for nothing like men do to beggars. He started correcting articles written by me in my bad English for this website.

We met several times in the past years. I even visited him in Great Britain / Bath once.

So if you come to Ulm / Germany for example visiting the famous christmas market do not forget him and perhaps you give him a little money. His fate can be yours…
