About Kimberly Sullivan

There are actually a few of you reading now who don’t know me at all ( meaning I haven’t paid you or offered you extra credit to occasionally read a little of this and respond.) I haven’t until very recently “advertised” this “in process” writing exercise.  I have invited a few folks that I really want to criticize what I write. They read but rarely criticize. I’m going to have to pay them more, I guess.  I have a few friends who like reading enough to read most anything, and they show up time to time. And then there’s you newbies who don’t know me from Adam, but who have somehow connected with me through blogging. I cannot tell you how much your work and person have influenced my life and more importantly given me a safe place to be myself. Thank you anyone who suffers through, your reading translates as pure love to me.

So, the basics are:

I am 48. I am a native Athenian, the Georgian variety.  I left it nearly 24 years ago to go west and try my luck in this more Wild West than southern town, Birmingham. I’ve been in my share of shoot outs. I have met many wonderful people here in Alabama, dear, dear people. The land and I, however, just do not get along, and for a mystic like me, that makes for a tough go. But I am trying to notice Him, even in the chirt, the crunchy dirt like substance that covers this stretch of Alabama.

I have made many promises to write. More and more, the internal pressure builds and wills me do so. Thank you to those of you who challenge me with your faithfulness to lay down thought and memory and ideal. I will do my best to fulfill my promises.

As said so perfectly in my favorite movie,  Notting Hill,

There are things to say…”

  1. Hi Kf (I am calling you Karen in my head because I have a friend named Karen Sullivan)
    I saw your comments on my blog about Hinds’ Feet and then saw that you had a blog. Man, I love the internet!!! I have met so many interesting people this way! Looks like we have a lot in common: books, spirituality, teaching. I have subscribed to your post and plan to be in contact more often once the school year ends. 25 days and counting!!!!
    Glad to know you,
    Maureen Bartlett

    Hi Kim:

    Thanks for stopping by the blog. I love your writing! Your prose is like poetry.

    Best,

    Amanda

  3. I am sitting here with tears in my eyes. The emotion with which this was written is well…overwhelming. I can almost feel the wonder of shopping with your Daddy, the sweet time with your Nana and the sadness of losing her, and of course the giddy feeling of being swept off my feet literally by a boy and carried over muddy rain puddles.

    Cannot wait to read more of your writing!

  4. Kim, I am so glad to know you. I could read your writings all day long! I enjoy it ALMOST as much as freshly ground black coffee.

  6. Lovely to connect with you! And you have excellent taste in movies, friend – Notting Hill is one of my all-time favourites!

  7. I’ve got to know – which of the lovely ladies in the photo is you? I’d love to have a name to a face. Though two is nice, in my mind’s eye, one might be better. 🙂

    • Oh, I’m on the right. That’s one of my Edge kids, a protege, with me on a trip. I’m old. She is young. I’m 46. She is 16. Well, I do change it out. But, haven’t really been looking to build any kind of platform or identity. Kinda been hiding, waiting. I haven’t until just now, publicized on FB or Twitter. I’m just practicing here. The only folks who read this have until very recently known me personally. But, I hear you. I take it as a compliment. Sincerely taken under counsel. It may be time. (wink)

      fb: Kim White Sullivan – the whole gory story. you are welcome to it.

      • Well, hello there! I didn’t mean to start something, but maybe I’m glad I did. 🙂 I just thought it was funny that everytime I thought of you, I thought of you with two heads, though clearly you just have one beautiful one. Also, you are NOT old. Also, so glad you’re my friend.
