I’m not much of a poet, not much of a writer. What makes me both of those things is perhaps my undaunted love for both, and my insatiable thirst for self-expression and truth. Words have to be the least communicative means, and the meaning of a poem is always in between the words. Most often it’s a feeling or an understanding that cannot be quantified by language alone. Something profound, something that resonate within our deepest selves, something spontaneous and penetrating. I seek that feeling and understanding in life, and try to put them into words, into memory.

Oh, but I’m not as sophisticated as I sound. I poetize. Most of the time, I’m just me, incessantly hoarding gummy bears, reading a book with a vacant expression on the bus, dreaming through the day, praying to the universe before I go to bed, and goofing around with a huge grin on my face. Most importantly, I try to love everything. I try to live an uncomplicated life.

And I write.

    Kim: Just watched Riddick on DVD; which led me to your 2 posts. The follow up post “Men are all rapists” was not only insightful but made laugh quite a bit! You are correct though, a culture that idolizes male traits in females needs some serious questioning – appropriate name for your blog! Thank you for expressing how you feel in a relatable manner.

    Based on what I’ve read so far, I’m a fan! You write some great stuff, and from the tag cloud it looks like we have similar interests. Looking forward to reading more. ^_^

    I’m actually a poet as well and just started a blog about a week ago. Perhaps you could check it out and support a fellow wordsmith who’s just getting started? Much appreciated! 😉

    Hi Kim! I found your blog through 8tracks and must say I like what I see 🙂 After reading your About page I think we have similar ambitions / interests, too; I’m also leaning towards teaching, publishing, and / or world travel and cultures and wouldn’t you know it, I also love love love bubble tea! Best of luck finishing that short story– I know exactly what a challenge the task can be.
