Sam Vaknin is my new hero. He is a brilliant scholar. He’s done some heavy lifting around human behavior, using himself as a model. He breaks his scholastic papers down for us in laymen’s terms using humor and metaphor. Another alien, ya’ll. I know that truth is relevant, but I like what he’s laying down. Just take a listen. It’s not something that most people will want to hear, but he has helped me create a different narrative about human beings and what’s going on in society. There is a pandemic and it’s not just COVID-19.

Kimberly considers herself a maverick, which means an unorthodox or independent-minded person or an unbranded calf or yearling. She prefers the first definition. A writer, an architect and historian, an artist, and most recently, a musician, she is fascinated with juxtapositions like positive and negative, beauty and ugly, sublime and repulsive, black and white, reality and fantasy; and with the notion of the “other” and what it means to be human. She is also a bit obsessed with simulation theory. Kimberly currently spends her time between pursuing an MFA degree in prose and literary journalism at Mills College and bartending at her favorite dive bars. View all posts by kimpstudio
