the common bloggers of today, by virtue of an utter lack of vetting by others, assume they are endlessly interesting as central topic and sole illustrative subject, a fundamental  error and 21st c tech-based definition of amateurism. the key is to tell another’s story, for within each word exists the author already 10/14 ka schultz

on kurt vonnegut’s birthday, november 11, which also happens to be veteran’s day. vonnegut on chaos & man: ““There is no order in the world around us, we must adapt ourselves to the requirements of chaos instead. It is hard to adapt to chaos, but it can be done. I am living proof of that: It can be done.” — Breakfast of Champions

ka schultz response, on chaos & man: “there is no chaos; we pithy little humans are just unable to step back far enough to see the intricate patterns & exquisite design of a universe that, whether or not pre-ordained in its paths, spirals & star-deaths – nor in our momentary and meaningless misdeeds – is anything but random” 11/11/13

my FB post that accompanied the above:

readers: pick up vonnegut. not only for his wise & wry takes but also to pay homage to a (former) hoosier who spoke out against war & violence back when it was truly radical to do so…we still have a long way to go in this violent society of ours.

we owe this much to our servicemen too, so society can evolve past violent conflict and its so-called resolutions. i look forward to the day we send teachers, artists and musicians to infiltrate countries that “need” our “help” –  ka
