Edit From The Count
We Have a Biography of Kyle.
A number of readers have asked about my unusual name. The pure Anglo Saxon, usually male name, put together with a female Christian Saint name seems a bit confusing, I admit.
What number? 6? 7? 3?
My given name is “Kyle.” I took the name, “Anne,” when I converted to Catholicism at age 30, now 26 years ago. Saint Anne was the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Oh Lord she married Jeremiah.
It is written that Saint Anne and her husband, Saint Joachim waited nearly twenty years for the birth of their only child, and that when their blessed-among-all-women daughter was born, Saint Anne was past child-bearing age and had given up hope. The year my husband and I converted to Catholicism, we too had been waiting nearly ten years for the hoped-for arrival of a second child. Perhaps I took the name of Saint Anne, hoping that her intercessions would bring me a similar joy to hers. And within a few years’ time, my husband and I did indeed bear a lovely daughter to go with our ferocious son.
So...She took the name Anne in hopes of turning her husband on enough to get her pregnant. A bag may have also done the trick. As for wanting a daughter to go with your son...isn't that against the law?
Even though we had yearned for many children, God gave us only two. I tell our kids that He gave us quality, rather than the quantity we were seeking. And it is true; they are both admirable young people.
That's two too many but Kids have of over come worse things than racist ignorant parents. as for your quality not quantity statement...well you would know better than anybody I would imagine.
I use both names when signing my writing to signify for my readers both the fact that I am not male, but rather female, and that I am a Christian above all else.
So by reading the name Kyle-Anne we are suppose to say...wow she's a Christian.
My family tree is littered with artists, writers and a few musicians, and I spent all of my years as a full-time mom, supplementing our income with the sale of my paintings. My mother is an artist, and I learned to paint before I could read, so it came very naturally. Painting has been important and somewhat fulfilling, but writing is my passion.
Your family tree is also circular I would imagine. As for learning to paint before you learn to read is that really a big deal when you learn to read at the age of 42?
Fifteen years ago, I had a first novel published and really believed it would be a success; it wasn’t. For a decade I quietly wrote fiction that few people ever read, and piled up a nice collection of rejection slips. I might be piling them up still, if not for events far away and out of my control.
The hell you say! You wrote a book and no one read it? That should have given you a hint dear.
My life changed on September 11, 2001, our generation’s “Day of Infamy.” I had been on the front lines of the culture war every day raising our children, but when I saw those planes hit in NYC and DC, I was driven past grief to know how in the world we ended up in the mess we are in now.
How many fucking wars do we have going on in this country? and is this culture war the same one Ralph is fighting? it's amazing how many wars Conservatives will fight to keep from actually...you know? Fighting a war. Not only were you driven past grief you were driven past sanity.
I spent five years book-worming my way through the Koran and many other volumes about Mohammed and Islam. That took me into the political realm to learn all I could about the leaders whose fateful decisions seemed to weaken America’s defenses and empower the enemies of our civilization.
You could have had somebody else worm there way through it for you and given you a cliff notes version. As for "the leaders whose fateful decisions seemed to weaken Americas defenses and empower the enemies of our civilization" Fuck the Koran just read any legit biography of George W. Bush.
Finally, I put all else aside and devoted myself to reading and writing, using every ounce of my energy to apply my God-given common sense and forty years of Christian discipleship into the service of my Country through the power of the pen. This war will take many and varied soldiers to win; I hope to be one of them.
I sure don't know who who god gave the God-given common sense to Sister but it sure as fuck wasn't you. As for your forty year journey in to Christianity helping you serve your country with the pen that's great. There damn sure isn't any war you or your family would ever serve with a uniform and a bullet.
