As the first seeds of this blog began to form I texted my dear friend, Margaux, for advice. She explained domain names, key word searches and began feeding me ideas. I wanted something modern and contemporary but I was not satisfied with those two words because I feel they are overused. I had an opportunity to ask my spiritual advisor what word came to her mind and she suggested <strong><em>current! </em></strong>The word flowed off her lips like a salty, ocean spray.
My next step, because I am anal that way, was to look the word <em><strong>current </strong></em>up in my Websters Collegiate Dictionary, this particular dictionary was a gift from my Uncle Walt for graduation.
Definition of <em>CURRENT <a href=”http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/current”>http://www.merriam-we… </em>
1 <em>a</em><strong>:</strong> the part of a fluid body (as air or water) moving continuously in a certain direction <em>b</em><strong>:</strong> the swiftest part of a stream <em>c</em><strong>:</strong> a tidal or non tidal movement of lake or ocean water <em>d</em><strong>:</strong> flow marked by force or strength
2 <em>a</em><strong>:</strong> a tendency or course of events that is usually the result of an interplay of forces <<em>current</em><em>s</em> of public opinion> <em>b</em><strong>:</strong> a prevailing mood <strong>:</strong> <a href=”strain”>strain</a>
3 <strong>:</strong> a flow of electric charge; <em>also</em><strong>:</strong> the rate of such flow
When I read the first definition I was astonished and amazed and thankful. This definition is exactly what I wanted this blog to be about. I redefined the word for my purposes.
<strong>1. a: a swift group of humans marked by a force of love and strength that is moving continuously in the direction of Jesus Christ.</strong>
Thank you, my spiritual advisor, for giving me the word <em><strong>current!</strong></em>
Thank you Margaux for supporting me even when all I do is whine and feel sorry for myself.
I get a certain look from most people when they hear my first name is Kyle. First, I am a woman, I look like a woman and I hope I smell like a woman but I have this guy name. It is easy to understand the psycology behind my name, Meryl Streep, Glenn CLose, both guy names for very beautiful, intelligent, creative women. Thus I am Kyle Cameron.
