Share your thoughts on the future of literature. When did you start writing? The future of literature depends on many factors, such as the technology of life, bringing rhythmic humanization to the life of many societies, through the use of means of expression, including language in colloquial speech, public speech or the so-called literary language in editing various works. I am concerned that in the life of many nations the beauty of the mother tongue is disappearing, pushed out by the flood of the so-called a country that has conquered a successful community is imposed. Another of my observations on my 65-year artistic path is the phenomenon of the emergence of new language forms, which are mental shortcuts, and not the beautiful mother tongue, the respect and form of which was determined by national bards, e.g. my homeland in the poetry and prose of Adam Mickiewicz, Julisz Słowacki, Cyprian Kamil Norwid, Zygmunt Krasiński, Aleksander Fredro and many similar artists. Colloquially speaking, word formation causes distortions of linguistic communication in interpersonal contacts and introduces chaos to literary works caused by those who, striving for the peak of fame, do not care about any patterns. What counts for them is originality, otherness and incomprehension, enlarging literary works with sometimes primitive devices, disturbing the possibility of correct interpretation of their works. An example of the so-called weed in the language of every nation are all linguistic forms and mental abbreviations expressed, for example, popular ok. Of course, this abbreviation should be used when traveling to a foreign country, where it serves as a simple communicator. On the other hand, in a native language, such as Polish, there should be one equally easy-to-use word, e.g. the reverse KO, more precisely KO. In each translation, OK has only one expressive and limited meaning in communication, which is that it is good. On the other hand, in my language KO can be interpreted in different ways in an ambiguous simplified form of expressing one’s thoughts. Examples: you are KO for me – that is, you are a competent person, I don’t know if you know that you are KO for me, that is, you are loved to me, should I adjust my expenses KO means today that I have to make necessary adjustments in my expenses, etc.!! My thoughts are the result of many years of experience as an author, poet, composer, where, for example, in music (song) the most important thing is the text. Despite all my respect for the creators of the music in the song, the music is a kind of background or frame for the image of content and message expressed in words.
When did you start writing? The beginning of my literary path were the first attempts to compose poems in 1957, in the year of starting primary school, because earlier under the supervision of my parents I had acquired the ability to read and write. My adventure with fiction is writing short poems and phrases, written mainly at the request of my Polish language teacher on the occasion of school celebrations and concerts. My first musical compositions were created in 1968 at the age of 19 and from the beginning it was my great love. However, I did not have the opportunity to develop physically in this area of creative life, partly due to the lack of partners. However, even in this field, I still have noticeable individual and team successes. Among others, two Children’s Vocal Ensembles, led and founded by me, based on my compositions of children’s songs, won in Poznań for 8 years of their existence, 4x Voivodship Review in Poznań of Children’s Vocal Ensembles and performed 4x at Children’s Song Festivals in Sopot and Konin in Poland. in Sopot and Konin and won Silver Applause. I am also a composer and author of such a specific form as Hymns for Kindergartens, Primary Schools, Social Organizations, Unions, Associations and Sports Clubs, such as my favorite Football Club LechPoznań, which is the current Polish Champion. I am also the author and composer of Hymns, e.g. for the Junior High School in Mickuny, Lithuania. At the age of 70, I performed at the mocArt Festival in Katowice, where I won a distinction with the title of Mega Talent in the Vocal Competition. I am currently looking for a partner to record and stage perform my vocal compositions. I write for people of all ages, from children to the elderly. In 2013, in cooperation with a Latvian composer, we composed two pieces, one of which took second place at the Jazz Song Festival in Warsaw, and the other, composed by the same composer, became the official Anthem of the Festival. Warsaw.
I invite interested people to cooperation in the broad sense, who do not have the possibility to independently record and publish my musical works.
For good and for bad. Who’s winning these days? The first part of question #2 in its first part reads like a marriage vow: “for better and for worse.” This quote answers the second part of the question. If I am to live in Peace and achieve satisfaction from my achievements, we must be unity and brotherhood for all circumstances of our earthly existence. However, currently more pain and tears in this vale than joy and community in building the lives of future generations, our children and grandchildren. The brutal war in Ukraine is the best picture full of drama and humiliation of people who want to build Brotherhood, Freedom and Unity between the nations of the world. Many of us artists, writers, musicians have become involved in the defense of World Peace in the rank of World Global Peace Ambassadors. Our mission is fulfilled in a peaceful way by publishing many topics related to our common existence, care for human dignity, in particular the elderly and the sick, and care for the surrounding environment, combined with calling for peaceful resolution of human disputes, including international ones, with the help of our works. Personally, this form of creative work is close to me, which inspired me to found the Association of Artists and Writers of the World SAPS, which is online, non-profit, non-denominational and non-political. Unfortunately, there is still too much room in this world for brutality and aggression, slavery and the suppression of human rights. At the same time, the threat of nuclear self-destruction hangs over our world.

E-book or hardcover book. What will be the future? The future of paper books seems to be in jeopardy in the era of digitization and ubiquitous electronics. Perhaps a book published exclusively in a beautiful hard cover will defend itself, but perhaps e-books and new forms of electronic publication, still absent from common use, will prevail.
However, the paper edition has a chance to survive, because in such an edition, touching the pages with poetry, a man discovers the world around him anew!!!
A wish for 2023. I wish all people around the world, may their Star of prosperity shine with bright light and happiness, and may love not only be in poetry, but in life, may it be close to everyone with respect and sympathy for this New coming 2023, empathy your loved ones will be with you throughout the year
Zbigniew A phrase from your book:
1. He who has a heart in his chest has a man in his heart and is aware that someone is waiting for him
2. Will power, the power of the soul
every evil man will repent,
to cordial clean hands
give to someone who is “drowning” today
3. Life is beautiful and full of hope
let’s just have a heart for each other
they had every day.
Thank you very much..
