Thank You to The Voice television competition for jump-starting my discussion on LIFE, considering purpose and method, because not enough time is spent on the philosophy of existence when we are distracted by politicized values expressed by the “-ism” (racism, sexism, genderism, patriotism, capitalism) and its cousin “-istic”. Coach Alicia Keys and Season 12 winner Chris Blue invoke this concept during The Knockout Premier of Season 14. The show producers were smart enough to edit that in, to include that moment, which to the discerning viewer demonstrates intelligence all around. This bit of banter between the two struck a nerve with me, enough to pause and open this post with high expectations. Immediately below is a moment captured in time…
Or you can hop to http://kathleenkbooks.com or http://kathleenk.com to see this philosophy enacted. I feel alive when I work on my books, on my poetry, on my blogging and my Tweeting because reading and writing galvanize me. It is the thrill of the hunt for the proper word or powerful phrase and the artful juxtaposition of them that please me. Not my own work alone, I am an avid reader as many writers are (and you can tell); there is a bit of borrowing like in all arts, but the end result reflects one execution.

A young medical professional at my doctor’s office remembered me as a writer and I gave her one of my cards. Like the information above, the card was crafted deliberately to push an agenda. The card background looks like ruled paper with a red left-margin line; there’s heading type, subheading type, a logo… and each piece was considered alone and with the rest. As with the blurb above, it is jam-packed with a double-down link to augment the flat print statement of availability. That underscores the restatement in the title of this post, I am the writer of this because I made the effort to draft, refine and produce twelve books, etc., manifest in fact by deed then to support that with other channels.
This discussion was spontaneous and will ring for her because she’s at a stage (and state) of being, reaching for meaning to mix in with the facts of her job, her home, her family, her friends, her own heart and soul and hopes and dreams and fears and TIME, when is it TIME? We all have to apportion our time. It’s an unknown quantity, much like our talent and our will and our circumstances. It’s part of living to allocate resources, and art to assess them one against the other. More time or more money, which is needed more? More sleep or more sex… which will be appreciated more? There are two choices below, the third choice is neither, the fourth would be both. the Bonus is exactly that…
