Sometimes Katherine

catches the bouquet!

And other times Katherine

does not.

figuratively AND literally…

(this song is really sad, but I like it…)

READERS!

1)  When have you “caught the bouquet?”

2) When have you NOT “caught the bouquet?”

I have responsibilities…

Image   Screen shot 2013-09-10 at 5.20.47 PM Screen shot 2013-09-10 at 5.22.13 PM

but only because I choose to have responsibilities.

I believe in accepting legitimate criticism and also in getting out of my comfort zone, but if anyone ever tries to force or pressure me into anything in a manner or form with which I am not comfortable in any way at all…

I’M GONE!

Image

figuratively AND literally…

 But as is always the case, I am kind and civil about this.  Ain’t no James Dean, “rebel without a cause” thing going on here.  This is NOT me being selfish or evading (legitimate) responsibility in any way at all.

  I desire to work hard and stretch myself to serve others.

Still though.  The number 1 person on my list is ME!

Screen shot 2013-09-10 at 5.17.18 PM

and for that I will NEVER apologize…

🙂

READERS!

1) What responsibilities do you choose to have?

2) What is your LINE OF PROPRIETY when it comes to responsibility?

Dewey (eyed) Beauty Gets Lost in the Library…

Screen shot 2013-09-02 at 5.06.48 PM

I have a confession to make that may cause you to question my ethos as a thinker/writer/scholar:

Back to December all the time…

Screen shot 2013-09-01 at 10.54.33 PM

(don’t love this song, but am sad I didn’t mention DECEMber in the video AND I love Taylor’s whole look here…)

Anyways, libraries can be amazing, but even the great American transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson knew that they could be problematic:

Screen shot 2013-09-01 at 10.44.50 PM

“Meek young men grow up in libraries, believing it their duty to accept the views, which Cicero, which Locke, which Bacon, have given, forgetful that Cicero, Locke, and Bacon were only young men in libraries, when they wrote these books.”

          ~The American Scholar (this address is SO powerful.  Read (about) it!

Screen shot 2013-09-02 at 5.02.07 PM

And to further illustrate (figuratively AND literally!) this idea of library limits,

allow me to borrow some palabras from my dear friend:

They read all the books, but they CAN’T FIND THE ANSWERS!”

~7 time Grammy Winner (and thief of Kat’s heart) John Mayer

(and more than just part of Katherine’s [K]orazón…)

Whitney me JM concert...

half of my heart

whitney heart half JM concert

so BACK TO BIBLIOTECHAS (after that long but still fascinating tangent)!

Let’s ask ourselves what are the extremes/outliers to all the stuff available to us today..

Where is the wisdom in all this knowledge?

Eternal struggle between reading and writing…

(good problem to have…)

READERS!

What things do you like about the library?  What things intimidate you?

Screen shot 2013-09-01 at 10.40.14 PM

And do you know how to use the DDS?

And now I’m about to say something that

I often wish I could shout fiddle from the rooftops.

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.47.21 PM

Are you listening?

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.48.55 PM

Okay, here I go:

“I DON’T ANSWER TO ANYBODY,

AND IT’S A LOVELY, LOVELY FEELING!”

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 6.58.24 AM

There are of course limits to this philosophy, because I do represent Christ,

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 8.03.04 PM

I believe that women can be sexy,

but also ought to maintain class and (line of) propriety,

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.52.10 PM

and also I am a role model.

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.33.13 PM

But still “I do what I want!”

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.41.13 PM

Katherine, get back to John Mayer…

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.42.17 PM

Read more here about the concert that LITERALLY(!) changed my life…

And now Lightn’ing strikes for that thunderbolt of blasphemy

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 7.38.39 PM

for comparing myself to one of the greatest guitarists/poets of all time…

But allow me to quote from him once again:

“I LOOK GOOD CUZ I FEEL GOOD!”

4 John Mayer lyrics/links/quotations in one post.  Excellent job, sweet self…

Oh, yah, not only do KW and JM share fashion blunders, we also share writing blunders.  Check it out here. 

PS.  Even if your outfits are occasionally a little whacky, you can still be as cool as me.

“It’s true.  It’s true.  I choose you! (says Sara Bareilles). 

To have an awesome day!

Now GO!

Go fall in love.

Go change the world.

Go help an old lady move.

Go help her carry her groceries.

Go clean your car, (that’s what I need to do).

I need to go do my hair, and a few other things…

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 8.09.50 PM

I.  Choose.  You.
