All This Dude Wanted To Do Was Write.


I thought this video was super inspirational.  I wasn’t sure what it was about at first, but I am so glad I watched it!  What an inspiring 4.5 minutes.

It’s an HD video so be sure to watch it in FullScreen.

Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho was homeless in São Paulo, Brazil, for nearly 35 years, and became locally known for sitting in the same spot and writing every day. In April 2011, he was befriended by a young woman named Shalla Monteiro. Impressed by his poetry and wanting to help him with his dream of publishing a book, she created a Facebook Page to feature Raimundo’s writing. Neither could have expected what happened next. – Facebook Stories

  1. I found myself in a similar situation only a couple years ago. I was living on the streets of Venice, CA and just writing like he was, but for him to do it for 35 years is amazing! I have the upmost respect for this man for doing what he loved no matter what, also you’ve got a pretty cool blog dude haha.

Would love to hear your thoughts!
