Real Vs. Ideal (Poem)

Screen shot 2016-04-28 at 6.30.16 PM
“The natural [wo]man is an enemy…”

(Mosiah 3:19 in the Book of Mormon)

Toughest critic, newfound cynic, cross examine everything
Radar for threats, emotional debts, I trust only reluctantly
Riches on my mind, not quite as kind, eyeing the world ambitiously
Only a shell of my former self, where is that girl I used to be?

How can I retain my purity after tasting the fruit of iniquity?
Can I regain my innocence in the face of spiritual dissonance?

Struggle between who I am naturally
And the person that I need to be
Caught up in ideal identities
(My best friend and my enemy)

No easy victory in this internal war
I’ve lasted this long; I’ll keep fighting some more

“Got no choice but to fight, so fight on.”
        -John Mayer

Life is a series of constant epiphanies…

Image“Life is this constant series of epiphany after epiphany. ‘Oh, I know this now.  I didn’t know that then.  You’re a different person today than you were yesterday.’ ”

-The lovely and effervescent Ms. Taylor Swift

Totally true!  We’re always learning through trial-and-error experiences and unintentional lessons.  Epiphanies can be painful, but they can also be enriching and even comical.  And the real problem would be living all this time and NOT learning anything.  So we just gotta try to take things in stride, I think.

What epiphanies have YOU had?

Here is the original context (so inspiring, as always):

life is a constant series of epiphany after epiphany…

Writing’s sweet as frosting,

Image

but it’s also quite exhausting!

Screen shot 2013-11-22 at 11.28.38 PM

So I am just looooving this chance that I have to write.  To express myself and to say things that are valuable and can speak to others.  It’s a gift to have the means, the skills, and the freedom to create as I do.  Often times during the day I am inspired and think of things to write about!  I have to keep it tucked in my mind (or in my notebook) til I can finally get to it.  And I do get to it 🙂  So yes, I love the opportunity to write.

But it takes its toll, too!  Inspiration is often inconvenient.  Like often the best ideas come at really inopportune times (like in the middle of the night).  It’s something many artists deal with.  John Mayer, Natasha Bedingfield, and Taylor Swift to drop some big names.  And it takes energy.  Mental, emotional, physical energy.  Don’t get me wrong, I ain’t complaining!  Not in the least.  Just expressing that truly committing oneself to one’s chosen art form can be pretty tiring.

Writing’s sweet as frosting,

but it’s also quite exhausting!

“Now the cover of a Rolling Stone

Image

ain’t the cover of a Rolling Stone.”

What a drag to say

at least I still have yesterday

 

Lyrics here. 

This is one of those Mayer songs that I didn’t quite grasp or understand the first few times I heard it.  But a recent listen helped me realize it is a subtle masterpiece.  John pines for an older, simpler time when true art was recognized and appreciated.  A time when people weren’t “celebrating broken things” like publicity stunts, reality shows, and the sick culture of the glorification of celebrity. The nostalgia for something real and substantial is a theme that appears in Mayer’s music again and again.

On a personal note, this song perfectly describes my feelings on what I call the artist’s own solution:

When no one has yet expressed what is lacking and

desperately needs to be expressed, you do it yourself.

Screen shot 2013-10-27 at 9.13.17 AM

Much of my own blog is this:  no one (at least that I know of) has written some things that need to be written, so I do.  I have found that I often have the gift to be able to find the words to describe the feelings/ viewpoints of others, so perhaps they might at times think to themselves that Katherine “Speak[s] for Me” (the title of John’s song)!  I believe this is one of the major reasons why my blog has done so well in a relatively short time period.

Other times, some artists have already found the words to express (and often surpass!) what I feel, so I borrow from them!  In case you haven’t noticed, John Mayer often is my biggest source of inspiration (duh!).

Okay, I’ve taken a terrific tangent from the song which inspired this particular post.  So I’m gonna get back on track! 🙂    Though “Speak for Me” is only 3:04 in length, I could write pages upon pages about it’s chord structure, rhyme scheme, thematic substance, literary/grammatical structures, et cetera.  As I said earlier in this post, this song is a subtle masterpiece. 

Just one brief detail which I wish to analyze:

  I’m not mad about it

But I’m not that mad about it

I’m not mad about it

But I’m not that mad about it

Repetitive?  Yes.  Lazy?  No.  Seemingly simple, but cleverly complex?  Definitely!  The first connotation of “mad” is angry, while the second connotation is crazy/happy about.  True to character, John rarely (if ever) becomes angry about things that he wishes were different, but instead expresses a sadness.  This is how I often feel myself; not one to get belligerent (except on rare occasions), but on the contrary just am sometimes sad.

Screen shot 2013-10-27 at 9.25.41 AM

Alrighty time to wrap it up for this post.  As is the theme of this song, I often am disappointed in the the overall lack of quality in our world today.  Not only in music, but just in people and society altogether.  Our problems are far from few, and I often get frustrated when I see people compound what is already less than ideal by their (lack of) actions, words, and attitudes.  But thankfully in an age of gimmicks and phonies, there are some constants we can count on.  Among other things, I can always find something (to borrow the words from Ms. Taylor Swift) “good and right and real” in the music of John.

He truly does “Speak for Me.”

Bill Maher makes my heart sour.

Screen shot 2013-10-10 at 9.17.41 PM

Let Ms. Wilkinson give you the low-down

on what’s goin’ on with the fool pictured above:

Recap:

1)  I believe in free speech.

2)  I haven’t seen a ton of Billy’s stuff, but what I have seen is almost always disrespectful, sacrilegious, discriminatory, inappropriate, racist, unkind, profane, rude, obscene, and just overall mean.

3)  I don’t hate anyone except for Satan (although Maher makes me reconsider somewhat…).

4)  I validate people who have concerns with organized religion (or otherwise doctrinally strict life philosophies).  Read more here about this:

5)  I don’t think all atheists are bad people (read more here!).

6)  I VERY MUCH think that Bill Maher is a bad person (and I don’t make comments like that very often!).

7)  I see connections between Bill Maher and the Book of Mormon figure Korihor.

Screen shot 2013-10-10 at 9.16.06 PM

8)  There are public figures who poke fun at Mormonism (and other religious/cultural groups as well) in a way that is NOT unkind or belittling.  Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart are the ones that come to mind at the moment.

Screen shot 2013-10-11 at 9.20.51 PM

9)  If you’re dying for a television fix of a gray-haired man, may I suggest checkin’ out Anderson Cooper?  I am a fan of his stuff. And I even wrote him a lil’ poem!

Screen shot 2013-10-11 at 9.36.07 PM

10)  We may find others’ (religious) beliefs (very) odd, but still we must find the humanity and decency to show some level of respect, even if we do not (fully) agree.

Screen shot 2013-10-11 at 9.50.12 PM

CLOSING THOUGHTS

I’m not worried about (permanent) damage that Mr. Bill Maher will do to the image of the LDS Church (cuz he can’t!).  No way.  We’re here to say.  And he’ll be left to his own sad life.  (Sorry if this is a lil’ mean-spirited).

Still, Billy Boy bugs me so much so that I devoted

(a lot of) time and effort to writing this post.

Come on now, Maher. Change yo wayz a lil’ bit, huh?

I’d muuuuuch rather it be because of something like this:

Screen shot 2013-10-10 at 9.19.50 PM

🙂

PS.  I understand that his last name does not naturally rhyme with the word “sour;”  I twisted it for a stylistic purpose.   Lots of artists do this kind of thing (slant rhyme is the exact term).  John Mayer does it in his song “You’re No One ’til Someone Lets You Down.”  Check it stat!

proud girl!

PPS.  Not gonna lie, I’m quite proud of this post and its plethora of literary/journalistic/celebrity/religious/historical references.  Go count ’em!

KATH DON’T CARE what Simon Says…

Truths to Consider:

1)  WE ARE ALL ARTISTS! (here’s Prezident Uchtdorf’s take on this…)

2)  We ain’t all gonna make it big (and that’s okay, ya’ll!)

3)  Stem of Jesse (Jessica!) in the scriptures

4)  What insight “The Merchant of Venice” taught me about the HBO filth series “Girls”

5)  My take on “The Great Gatsby” in 3 sentences.

6)  Haven’t yet written about Mark Twain’s  ever famous and influential piece (Huck Finn).  Stay.  Tuned.

7)  What Amanda Bynes (indirectly) taught me about Mormon temples.

8)  “American Idol” certainly has produced some talent, but overall is waaaaay over-rated.

9)  Hozaboutcha take an exodus from this blog and go read about what Moses says about idols? (here!)

10)  Katherine loves wordplay.  And admit it, she’s pretty darn awesome at it, huh? 🙂

When I first started my blog, I was too liberal in posting it on friends’ Facebook walls.  Don’t hate me too much, I was just excited! 🙂  And don’t worry either; I’m smarter than that now.  Still, internet spam is a problem that annoys pretty much everyone at some point or another.  And when it comes to my own mistakes, I always take blame when necessary.  So beef it up and watch my sincere and meaty apology!  You won’t wanna miss it:

Hope ya’ll enjoyed that.  Because it wasn’t my favorite thing in the world.  So sorry again for spamming.  But now:

Dewey (eyed) Beauty Gets Lost in the Library…

Would you rather your kids hear about sex from YOU (presumably a responsible adult), or from some punk scoundrels in a locker room that smells like spoiled cottage cheese?!

Screen shot 2013-08-22 at 3.44.18 PM

(trick question, kinda…)

Seriously though.  Yah, it can be totez awkward.  But avoiding it is worse.    And let me tell you, there is NO LIMIT to the dirty little secrets/ videos/ “tips” these days with the technology that is rampantly available.  And without your help, your kids will find them, and maybe even use them in a way that can and will hurt themselves, and others, not to mention breaking your heart in the process.  So it’s time for you (and all of us) to Be a (Wo)Man!  And talk about S-E-X.

Read text here:

“Mothers, teach your daughters the importance of the temple…

This means talking to [them] about sexual matters.”

And, yes the talk is for women.  Yes it’s from a man.  But if you are thinking there’s some misogynistic thing going here, you are dead wrong.

These principles are gender neutral.

Maybe you are too

Also, I bolded the part about sex.  That was a little weird.

(call to action, Katherine.  Kaction!)

So hop to it!

Off this computer right now.

Go have the sexy talk (if your kids are old enough, of course).

Say a little prayer first to help you not be nervous or weirded out

and also to say the right thing(s)

And wear something modest please 🙂

Protecting the image of the LDS Church…

Screen shot 2013-08-22 at 1.46.18 AM

is one of the things I take into consideration when writing this blessed blog.  It is certainly not the only thing (duh!), and it’s also not necessarily the most important thing either.  But it still clearly holds clout in the court of Kat’s mind.  It is a priority.  A major one, too.  And it’s not that I’m afraid of being called in to my Stake President for chastisement when I occasionally employ a pseudo-swear or playfully tease my viewers with the exposure of a juicy shoulder.  Not even close (I do not fear excommunication or any other lesser form of Church discipline).  It’s just that I have many different identities.  One of them is Mormon.  One of them is disciple of Jesus Christ.  Those things are not necessarily exactly the same, but there is definite overlap, huh? 🙂  And those particular identities strongly influence (but do not completely dictate) my choices.  And my outfits.   And my words.  And my puns.  And my music.  And my song lyrics.  And my pictures.  And my jokes.  And my videos.  And my topic/subject matters.  And my posts.  And my entire blog!  And although the Church is merely a vehicle through which to fully live/experience the gospel, it is a vehicle we must help keep clean.

(check out that last General Conference link/ talk:  it’s BOMB! and it is heavily influenced (or even appropriately plagiarized) by the Great Mormon thinker Eugene England.  Also, after my vehicle metaphor, I realized I need to vacuum my car this week…)

Screen shot 2013-08-22 at 2.35.40 PM   (it’s not mine, I googled it…)

“Maybe once a year, I think I’ll clean my car.”

~Gavin Degraw (Listen to this song, too.  SO GOOD!)

So back to the main point of this post.  Just remember this:

Katherine Cares about the Church.

And although I am still pretty new to this whole blogging thing, I am conscious of some of the repercussions I may cause (and am causing!), in whatever small/medium/big (or completely microscopic) way .   Mormonism is my mother tongue, my homeland, and, although I love to travel, when it comes to my faith, I ain’t never leavin!

So hopefully the Church’s image isn’t hurt when I post pictures like this:

Image

And I think now would be an excellent time to remind you that Mormons no longer practice polygamy (if they do, it’s some off-shoot brand that is not recognized by the Brethren), and also that I wrote a smashing article about a girl who was born into a polygamous family, then later joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Check out the published piece of pie!  Oh, and just so you know, Vilate’s story has gotten even wilder.  Like, out of this world crazy.  In a good way, though.  Stay.  Tuned.

Gotta take Taylor Swift’s example and go burn all my bikini pix now.

Screen shot 2013-08-28 at 8.55.35 PM

And for my beloved readers, how clean do YOU keep the image of your church (or family name/affiliation, etc.)  How clean do you keep your literal car?  And which is more important (trick question…)?

“You said we’d never make my parents’ mistakes…”

Nature vs. nurture is a theme as old (and relevant!) as any other in literature/ music/ film, etc.  So when it comes to our own lives and relationships, how much will we incorporate what we’ve seen from example (for good and for bad), and how much will we be pioneers and break new ground?

We said we’d never make our parents’ mistakes…

Just to clarify, PLEASE KNOW that I am NOT writing this post about my own parents.  I’m writing it because I know that not everyone is so lucky.

The letters “K” and “W” don’t exist in Spanish…

Darnie.  Those letters are special to me; they are my (and Kanye’s!) initials. 

The “K” sound is made by “qu,” as in quince (“15”, which IS a good bildungsroman Tay-tay song).

The “W’ sound is made by “ue” as in abuelo (“grandfather,” as in my grandfather Ernest)

Kinda cool, I guess.  Still, I wouldn’t mind if these letters find their way into mainstream Spanish someday.

Controversy can overshadow talent and achievement….

There are SOOOO many examples of this, but here are just a few:

Image

1)  Kanye West- (um, Taylor Swift incident, anyone?)

2)  Eminem (If CNN has a top 10, that’s pretty bad Marshall)

3)  John Mayer (You know I love you Johnny, but don’t be spilling your secrets about women! Plus, chastity is where it’s at, anyways.)

And countless, countless others.  These people are often UNBELIEVABLY GIFTED, but when they get brought up in conversation, unfortunately that all often just gets forgotten because of mistakes they’ve made.

Just one more reason to keep my clothes modest.  That and I haven’t hit the gym in a while.

PS.  I do believe in repentance and redemption.  I do.
