Romance/Drama!! Love Beyond Innocence (Book) - 6/2/2009 5:48:16 AM
I have loved the story badly. The use of students to show how the truel love can be spoiled by dishonest as well as intorelance sounds perfect to me. However, I don't understand why Dana choose to hide the fact that he is a gay. What made him choose to be a gay in the first place? Why he feels shy then for beibg a gay. If being a gay is something to be ashame of, he has to think of stopping. All in all I appreciate your choice of highliting the homosexual relationship. Please do somethink to help hate this relationship.

Suicide/The Explosion Within (Book) - 6/13/2007 11:02:34 AM
Heartfelt and I understand this for I lost a very dear and loving friend decades ago to suicide. The best to you in your work and it is fantastic that you have so much to offer the literary world and I am sure society as a whole.
The best to you filled with many blessings and love,

Romance!!! To Catch a Kitten (Book) - 6/13/2007 10:53:57 AM
Wow this book seems to be powerfully packed with action also. Wishing you much success on your wonderful books Kathryn. Surely hope Kitten doesn't get into too much trouble with her explorative way~smile. Continued blessings and more books to come.
Romance!!! To Catch a Kitten (Book) - 4/18/2007 7:31:18 AM
Kitten is everything but innocent in this steamy novel, full of sex, lies, greed and more! This story is about a young, attractive woman who captivates and empties the pockets of more than a few good, professional and wealthy men, who find themselves entangled in her web of lies, girl-drama and deception.
Through the Eyes of a Daughter (Short Story) - 5/7/2012 1:59:22 PM
Wow, this story is truly powerful and enlightening. This masterfully written depiction draws a unique comparison and contrast between mother and daughter relationships from one generation to another. The reality of objectively and subjectively looking at oneself, envisioning your past, present and future… all reflections of a mother and daughter relationship that clearly defines and vividly describes ones personal experiences as a mother while brilliantly recalling the past and present and envisoning the future.
Awesome would describe this well written summation of collective life observations, experience and revelation that Kathryn S. Carrington skillfully illustrates and describes both similarities and differences between mother and daughter relationships both yesterday and today.
Loved it! Thamks for sharing!
Through the Eyes of a Daughter (Short Story) - 5/29/2011 7:05:06 PM
what a powerful prose. this was more then a short story, indeed it was prose; elegant and thoughtful. some of the best writing that i have read on AD. it makes me think that what we leave behind is just as important as what we take ....
She (Revised) (Short Story) - 10/17/2010 1:04:30 AM
Touched .. !
She (Revised) (Short Story) - 11/21/2009 9:59:51 AM
This reached inside me and touched all the places that seem so familiar. You wrenched almost every emotion from these few words. Beautifully written.
Through the Eyes of a Daughter (Short Story) - 4/3/2009 10:36:06 AM
Your story brought tears to my eyes, as I have a Tiffany too...and I hope we grow to have a closeness like you share with your daughter. (She is only nine right now.) Your words brought forth images of myself and my mother and also of my oldest daughter...the pain that lies below the surface with me in regards to my relationship with my mother & yet also the joy that I share with having a close kinship with my daughter. She will never have to wonder if I love her...she knows...
Thank you for sharing your tender thoughts with us.
She (Revised) (Short Story) - 3/26/2009 10:04:38 AM
This is a beautiful story.
She (Revised) (Short Story) - 7/19/2008 6:38:06 AM
This is so beautifully done. It was beneficial to include the scriptures as she was considering each. I appreciate having the opportunity to read it. Thank you!
She (Revised) (Short Story) - 1/5/2008 11:30:29 AM
Wow, a powerful story with lots of emotion and truth. It would take a woman stronger then me to continue with a man who treats me like an old sack.
Through the Eyes of a Daughter (Short Story) - 9/25/2007 11:32:51 AM
Thank you for sharing these lovely sentiments, Kathryn. You are fortunate to have a daughter like Tiffany and she is fortunate to have you as a mother. Love and blessings to you both,
She (Revised) (Short Story) - 9/25/2007 11:30:00 AM
Sad but powerfully emotive and meaningful, Kathryn. Thank you. Love and peace to you,
She (Revised) (Short Story) - 6/30/2007 2:09:20 AM
I know of many women like this. truth is a powerful emotion in itself. She will leave him one day... I did.
She (Revised) (Short Story) - 4/17/2007 3:01:48 PM
I enjoyed this story, Kathryn. A lot of truth here, and some very powerful emotions. I felt very sympathetic toward your character and her situation. Very sad for her, but in her vulnerability, I also sensed an inner strength. Nicely written.
Aiding The Underprivileged and The Needy (Article) - 3/15/2014 9:34:39 AM
Very well written article. It all boils down to fairness. If we let unfairness rule, discontent will grow. And with discontent, our worst instincts take over. We have to be smart enough and fair enough to not let that happen.
How Safe Is Our Food (Article) - 2/25/2014 6:41:39 AM
Based on what my grandparents ate, food is much healthier today. Those who came out of the Depression like my father, were meat and potatoes people who smoked much more than earlier generations. He suffered for it in his 80s but outlived his father who never went to the doctor until he had prostate cancer in his early 70s.
Factory farms are dangerous, but so are the farms prior to many of the USDA regulations. Eating in restaurants is always dangerous because one tends to eat too much of the wrong food. Too much of anything generally turns out to be bad. After I left my mother's rich artery clogging food for college and had to cook on a shoestring diet, I changed my diet drastically and have, as result good health in my 70s even though I have been paralyzed for 50 years and unable to exercise vigorously for the last 20.

Loving the Skin I'm In (Article) - 4/3/2009 10:52:28 AM
I read your article "Loving the Skin I'm In" with curiosity and with fascination. I am Caucasian, but I have a daughter who is bi-racial as well as 7 "black" children from Haiti. I hope that none of them ever feel that their skin is not light enough, or dark enough to fit in anywhere. It is sad to me that my hope is likely not to be realized...but I also understand, as I so often feel that I am looked down upon by those who feel I am the "wrong" color to raise these children.
My favorite comment about being comfortable about the skin I'm in came from my then 4 year old daughter. We had many people telling us that frequently transracially adopted children (those adopted into Cauc. families) wished they were white as well. We wanted to gain a sense of whether or not our children felt this way. We asked our daughters if they liked white skin or brown skin better, or the same. Our daughter piped up and very diplomatically said, "White is pretty, but I like brown on me." May she ever feel that way...for brown is beautiful on her!
What Happened to The Really Great Movie Ideas? (Article) - 2/14/2009 12:50:34 PM
Kathryn - happy v - day -- and your article is written extremely well. You point makes all the sense in the world, what has happen to those well written stories. I look to music and movies as the same. Those who control these businesses have a mind set that - they believe is what people want to hear. Those types of people lack vision and are surrounded by yes people. I do believe that we shall turn back the clock to a time of stories, romance and good music.
What Happened to The Really Great Movie Ideas? (Article) - 2/13/2009 5:24:50 AM
Good to finally hear from you again. As you know, I follow you on AD and I'm aware of your past and your book "Momma and Us." It is a very sad story about children growing up in the saddest of situations, a complete opposite of my own youth. Your story would indeed make a movie that would probably glue us to the screen. You should contact my agent, as you know, she sold the movie rights to my own book and might be able to help you too. I'll buy the popcorn :)
10 Step Guide to Avoiding a Person With Bad Breath (Article) - 1/23/2009 12:14:32 PM
That is funny and helpful at the same time. I don't think there is one person over 2 years old that hasn't wondered about how to get away from that person with bad breath without offending them as much as the are offending us. But lo and behold, we're all living and everything living gets the bad breath blues too, so this is helpful to everyone no matter what side of the breath they happen to be on.
10 Step Guide to Avoiding a Person With Bad Breath (Article) - 6/16/2008 2:07:19 PM
This is a great article. I admire your wit, humor, and ability to explain your ideas so clearly. I admire your style, and plan to read more. I am a fairly new writer on this site, but I must say, this piece really caught my eye. I have just written a few short stories and poems, too. Great work, and I look forward to reading more of your work!
Loving the Skin I'm In (Article) - 7/7/2007 7:17:07 AM
A fascinating article. It highlights what should be a given ... color and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
Warm regards ...

Loving the Skin I'm In (Article) - 6/13/2007 10:46:04 AM
Wonderful article and all too real. Greatest gift is life regardless of what skin we are in, far too many times people do accuse other's of many things concerning their heritage however it is what we believe in our hearts that we are. Regardless, of what anyone else says or feels the beauty of each person is to be found in the interior. Another excellent read and I do hope Essence Magazine published it too!
You are beautiful regardless what skin or heritage you are!
Sincerely and with blessing,
From the Heart of an Aritst...

Enjoyably nostalgic read.
Yesterdays Gone (Poetry) - 7/19/2011 6:05:56 PM
Those qualities that have slowly disappeared. Yet, they have something universally appreciated and expected. Interesting subject!
Danger to Myself (Poetry) - 5/30/2011 4:53:58 AM
Look up, Kathryn! Look up! Your help will come from the Lord, hopeflly very soon. Just keep the faith!
Yesterdays Gone (Poetry) - 4/17/2011 8:10:43 PM
Sounds like what the Apostle Peter was referring to in the book bearing his name. The strong, inner quality that does not fade with age, but only grows sweeter and more valuable with maturity.
Great write Kathryn!
Yesterdays Gone (Poetry) - 3/8/2011 5:53:30 PM
You whisked me back to the golden years.

Eyes - The Color of Rum (Poetry) - 4/7/2010 6:46:08 AM
"The color of rum" was a very good descriptive choice of wording. Not only for the qualities of rum but also for the creativity in choosing original concepts. I enjoyed reading it.
The Willow (Poetry) - 4/7/2010 6:41:43 AM
Nice imagery presented here. It beckons the imagination to wander to a Willow tree.
Yesterdays Gone (Poetry) - 2/27/2010 6:15:40 PM
They sure don't make em like that anymore.
Nice poetry, Gerry
Yesterdays Gone (Poetry) - 1/8/2010 8:34:59 AM
Hello Kathryn, and Happy New Year -- thanks for sharing your poem. And those days for most are gone, but a few of us remember how to treat a Queen and to admire a Princess.
Just released new CD --- I Will Live Forever and so shall those days.

I Am But a Wounded Bird (Poetry) - 10/22/2009 2:28:42 AM
Yes, am wounded bird yes, I was abused by my father. It took many years to gey over it. I am 90%over it. That 10 percent I am still working on by helping others much less fortunate.
God Bless you for sharing Kathryn! That is a huge step in the right direction.
Sisters (Poetry) - 8/26/2009 9:53:38 AM
Truly a fine tribute to sisterhood, Kathryn. I have one sister and five brothers; I am not really very close to any of them though. Thanks for sharing. Love and best wishes,
Sisters (Poetry) - 5/27/2009 8:13:40 AM
Great job Kathryn, I have 4 sisters too so I can relate to your words.

Nicely done Kat. I have five brothers and one sister and she is very special to me. You have a loving happy family and you are blessed. And you are right, life is far too short to pretend. Eyes the color of rum my friend :)
Peace be with you my Friend (Poetry) - 4/3/2009 10:29:55 AM
How well you expressed the feelings of betrayal...and then moving on to forgiveness and even love for the friend whom you once trusted. I, too, have written some poems along the same subject...The Color of Forgiveness, Inkblots, To Bridge a Heart, Essence...
Your writings have heart.
The Man Inside My Son (Poetry) - 4/3/2009 10:21:07 AM

Hi Kathryn, I read your poem, "Peace be with you my Friend". I found
it shed a lot of God's light. Well done. Peace to you and yours. Please feel free to visit my site here in the "Den"
The Willow (Poetry) - 6/5/2008 8:38:36 AM
Loved to play under the willow tree in my youth and when it was so hot out. Still admire the willow trees when driving by in the car and wishing I could stop to rest under them a while and be free as you said. No sadness for me beneath the old willow tree.
Would You Trust a Stranger (Poetry) - 5/19/2008 12:00:16 AM
well as always meet a stranger in a public place and find everything you can about them but usually someone who goes that long and is open about themselves will in the end become either really good friends or a Lover
well done with your thoughts being expressed here-stay safe always my friend
Would You Trust a Stranger (Poetry) - 4/17/2008 2:17:48 PM
Only if that stranger was you Kathryn. My mind tells me the answer to your prose would be no, but it's written so well that my heart would be inclined to say YES !
Would You Trust a Stranger (Poetry) - 4/7/2008 12:05:29 AM
Excellent work and smooth flow in this piece. Continue with more of this romantic style...truly enjoyed so...but then again Romance pieces are my genre.
Would You Trust a Stranger (Poetry) - 4/3/2008 1:25:56 PM
lovely bit of work here... well done flow, great rhythm and a great play on the theme of deception.

Would You Trust a Stranger (Poetry) - 4/3/2008 10:23:54 AM

Would You Trust a Stranger (Poetry) - 4/3/2008 6:36:37 AM
You raise some very interesting and real questions, enjoyed the poem.
I Am But a Wounded Bird (Poetry) - 3/5/2008 7:51:55 PM
The part about time passing you by resonated within my own heart, because I have prayed for a true love. I'm still waiting. I too, am a wounded bird. You've done a superb job of putting all those layers and depths of emotions into words and the conflict between keeping from being further wounded and taking a chance again. Great job!
May God grant you your heart's desire.
I Am But a Wounded Bird (Poetry) - 3/1/2008 12:18:48 AM

Phenomenol write, Kathryn...beautiful wording and romantic style.
I Am But a Wounded Bird (Poetry) - 11/7/2007 4:28:05 PM
It would be nice if we all had a crystal ball that allowed us to see what the future holds for us but such is not life. We have to stay the course and learn all we can from a relationship so that there are no hidden surprises down the road to wound us again. Not an easy task.
I Am But a Wounded Bird (Poetry) - 11/7/2007 12:43:14 PM
Kathryn, Kathryn, Kathryn. Stop looking through a peephole and stick your head out the door instead! Go for it, for even if you make a painful mistake it is still better than sharing yourself, your dreams and your love, with no one. Nicely done.
Love ya, *Glen*

Take a chance, Kiddo. Poignant poem but you need to spread your wings and fly. Don't be a prisoner of fear and regret.
The Man Inside My Son (Poetry) - 10/31/2007 10:24:30 AM
This is well done like a good T-Bone Steak. I admire your motherhood. You're not overbearing but much like a pot letting your son your seed grow into his manhood while you support his rising. I congratulate you one being a great mother and know that your son will make you proud of his upbringing. Very Inspiring Piece of Poetry!

Powerful description of depression. My "White Rose Bud" was on this subject. Another fine job of description. Thank you for sharing your soul with us.
The Man Inside My Son (Poetry) - 9/19/2007 1:46:03 PM
I'm certain Taavon gets that warm, tingling feeling in his belly when he reads these words. You've done a great, poetic job of describing your love for him.
My "Rubber Purple Dinosaur" was written for my son when he was 5. We men have these feelings too.
Eyes - The Color of Rum (Poetry) - 9/19/2007 1:43:54 PM

The poem on your last page of your upcoming book makes me wonder who you have written about previously. I would like to know more about your book. If possible, please send me a message.
Danger to Myself (Poetry) - 8/24/2007 9:14:23 AM
Wow! The majority of people probably feel that way about themselves. We seem to be almost incapable of appreciating or loving ourselves, and yet to others we are much more. Few people on this earth could have penned those thoughts and emotions as eloquently as you. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Glen

Hello Kathryn, I enjoy your poem They don't know not my worries. It's interesting for I too wrote about a bird from a different angle. You provided me food for thought. I pray for your continued success.

I find the "birds" in this poem particularly symbolic, Kathryn. I agree that "worries" often keep us from being or at least "feeling" free. Thank you for sharing this offering. Welcome to AD. Love and peace,

A beautiful notion - to see and attain the heights of the birds to clarify and enhance our own inadequacies.
In your third stanza, sixth line, you use the word "tares" (which are weedy vetches or a type of weedy annual grass) - I believe that you intended to use "tears" (being forceably pulled apart)
Congratulations on your book of poetry and welcome to Authors Den.
