Life As An Extroverted Introvert

Life As An Extroverted Introvert

By KaZ Akers

How IS Life As An Extroverted Introvert? FIRST: There are A LOT of us. When I discovered I’m an extroverted introvert my reaction was: “That explains A LOT!” What is an extroverted introvert? Someone who taught themselves to be extroverted due to circumstances or necessity. Now you see me, now you don’t. Could you be one, too? Let’s get on with it.

“Flowing Like Water” How To Navigate Life.
“Flowing Like Water” How To Navigate Life.
This is a poem from my first book of poetry “Singsong Crows And Alphabet Soup. Flowing Like Water See the person you desire to be. Gracefulness, peace, bliss. Flowing like water. The ethereal living in human form. In the moment. Flowing like water. Day by day. Radiant and resplendent. Flowing like water. The agenda to live life with ease. Whatever comes passes through and transforms into liquid. Flowing like water. Navigating the rocks and the limbs. Flowing like water. Flowing like water. Flowing as water. © KaZ Akers https://kazakers.com

To Our Late Dog. Never, Ever Forgotten.
To Our Late Dog. Never, Ever Forgotten.
We lost our precious dog earlier this year. He had been struggling with his health, but maintaining. Then he took a turn for the worst. I can imagine this may have happened to some of you. The entire family is still bereft because he played such an integral part in our lives. He was a service dog for a family member and he was incredibly intuitive. A little guy with a big presence. My husband asked me to write a poem about him and it just poured out of me. It’s also featured in The PROAGE Woman Magazine. theproagewoman.com. Thanks for listening. Website: https://kazakers.com.

Ageism Is Discrimination
Ageism Is Discrimination
Greetings from the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii. It’s amazing to watch how well elders are treated here. I continue discussing things that people say that are extremely ageist, and they have not educated themselves to know that their words are discriminatory and negative. Ageism is a huge epidemic. The thing is, there are hundreds of millions of people over the age of 50 all over the world. But North America seems to treat this group like pariahs. When you travel outside of North America to countries in Europe, Asia and Africa “elders” are revered and acknowledged. They are vital members of the community. What’s the reason that hasn’t caught on in North America? Let’s keep talking about this and educating each other. Website: https://kazakers.com.

The Planet Is In Trouble…
The Planet Is In Trouble…
I’m crazy about nature. I know I’m not always the best steward of it. I need to be better. I talk a lot about it in my new book “Drink Nature “. As a matter fact that’s all I talk about: my love of nature through poetry. There is so much we can do to help this planet. It’s not a foregone conclusion that we are at the beginning of the end. Every individual can make a difference. We can’t wait for the major corporations to get their heads out of…the sand😜 to make changes in their carbon footprint or be less polluting. Some are making “efforts“ but too many are only giving us lip service and behind the scenes it’s really just talk. It doesn’t have to be just talk for each individual person. In this episode I talk about what I LOVE ABOUT NATURE AND I give you simple ways to help the planet that can help you live a better, healthier, more satisfying life.

Who’s Your Dada?
Who’s Your Dada?
if you’ve listened to the Talking Heads I Zimbra, or have gone to a Cirque du Soleil performance, you have experienced Dada. SO What the hell is “Dada”? Not everyone gets Dada; I get that. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) But there is really nothing to get. It is everything and nothing: you get it, you don’t get it, it’s all OK. Available to everyone in all languages because it is no language. In this podcast I have a humorous anecdote about a friend’s response to a Dada poem in my last book. It spurred me on to perform the Dada sound poem I wrote. I trust it will get clearer to those who have read it.

You’re Amazing!
In this episode I talk about advice I got from a Buddhist monk and how I felt about it, embracing all of ourselves, getting help when we need it and getting out own of our own way. The Traditional Chinese Medicine herbal “Happy Pill” I talked about is called: Jia Wei Xiao Yao Wan. *Do your own research about it. Especially if you are taking any prescription medications. Check for interactions. I’m just sharing that it works for me. It’s not an endorsement. My next book Drink Nature – poetry and pictures on nature - is NOW available.

Next time I’ll talk about the road to getting published and your role after the book is released YES, there is still work to be done after release.

Oh No! Writing Roadblock.
Oh No! Writing Roadblock.
Where can we find the inspiration for our writing? Sometimes it is as close as our own experiences. You don’t need to “tell all” but you can certainly pass on your experiences in one way or another as “fodder” for your writing. I share a little tidbit about Stephen King and how he is inspired.
