In Memory of Kay Kim's Blogs

12 More Very Cool Things


1. My
all time favorite movie scene from “ Dead Poet\’s Society.” BRILLIANT.  AWARD worthy.  Rocks my skirt off.


2. This is what I bought my girlfriend for
her birthday from  Crazy Bitch Society.
She is hiding her face because she doesn’t want you to know she’s Craaazy….or
a Bitch!   xxx

you’re not only a crazy bitch, but you’re a skinny bitch.  Damn you.





3. I bought this bell for The Killer.   Do you think it’s big enough?



4. My Mentor & Friend,  Mercy Adhiambo.  She will be graduating with a degree in journalism
in Nairobi on
August 18.   CONGRATS.  I love you more than fluffy white kittens in
the Kenyan sun.

Mercy Performing Poetry.




5. Mrs.
T.  reading 50 Shades of Shit.   Realllly?
I have a suggestion for you,  skip
all the pages without the hot sex!




6.      I
made Shortbread Bars W/ Almond Frosting and they “Actually” turned out!  I’m not kidding you.  WOW.



7. Kay’s
deaf cat,  White,  whom was adopted by
my awwesome friend,  Tia.



8.      My cat,
Charlie, sleeping & dreaming of  kitten-hood.




9.       Kay’s
son,  Jordan,  on Saint Shirley’s deck.   Isn’t he cute?

Jordan’s tattoo says “Gorgeous Kay.”



10.     I call her my Zen Teacher because of her
kindness, wisdom, compassion, insight, & passion for life….but her real
name is Vidya.   Love flowing to India, Dearest Sweetest Beautiufl Vidya. xxx



11.      Another
Kay’s Garden Photo.

Come Pray With me….



12.     I
read this at Kay’s funeral, but I don’t remember reading it.   Tia will
read it at mine.



Dear, Reader,   tell
me something cool about ((YOU. ))  Xx  xxx

    Oh, I love this! I think the bell is the PERFECT size 🙂 Adore DPS. One of my all time fave movies.

    Want something great? I was convinced some art which inspired part of my book would not be included because of health reasons I hate. I got word today, I will have my art to go in my book in time to go to press at the end of the month.

    I adore happy tension!

    Love you muchly,

Love all forms of kitties – and LOVE Mrs. T’s black dress and amazing bracelet. Mercy is so beautiful – such a dramatic picture. I always love your lists – they inform, make me smile, teach me, and bless me – and, like one commentor said, give a glimpse into you. I luff yew, dear friend.

    That reading of the poem moved me to tears–just beautiful.

    Something cool about me? I just (finally) made an actual plan for finishing a draft of my first book. If I follow it, it will be done before I turn the big 5-0 next May!

    As always, I love reading your blog. You make me smile most of the time and sometimes cry. I want some of those shortbread bars. I can’t read your blog when I’m hungry or sad. I love gardens and color in gardens. If the deer hadn’t eaten all of my red lilies I would have had some spectacular red in my garden.What you may not know about me is that I am a Frankophile. I love everything French but most of all Impressionist paintings and learning about the lives of the artists. I have been to France 4 times and would go back again and again. Thanks for writing your wonderful list.

    Love that scene from Dead Poets Society too – do you think we ever have the bells 😉 big enough to pull that kind of grand gestures off in ‘real life’ ? It always seems to go over so much better in the movies and people generally seem bestowed with greater bravery… funny that.

    The cats are adorable and Kay’s garden is simply beautiful. Love that you are smiling in the middle of it.

    Have to check out Vidya – Mercy is beyond stunning.

    I think that you have left yourself off the list of very cool things. A mistake. I am not arguing with your list, but if you add yourself in as well you could just call it a bakers’ dozen.
    We had a white cat. We called him WhiteCat, because he essentially moved in on us and after several weeks of saying the WhiteCat is back, he moved in officially. I miss him still.

Lucky girl–not only is she crazy (the best quality a human can have, in my humble opinion!) but she’s thin! Sigh. I guess for now I’ll have to console myself with just being crazy! hee hee! The poem by E.E. Cummings is superb. It’s been one of my favorites ever since I read it for the first time back in high school. Something cool about me? How about the fact that I dance with Roxy in my kitchen almost every night, window open, to the music of Mariah Carey? 🙂
