Virus Update

Virus Update

Two years later and we are still virtually where we started – with an inadequate health care resource system!

That’s because we continue to ignore that health care is an economic activity just as much as putting that fancy new button on your new truck!

In fact, health care is the primary economic activity. Our health allows for everything else.

Trillions of dollars are being spent to jump start the economy.

Where is the fast-tracking to triple our illness care personnel? 

Where are all the new separate infection control facilities? 

These two are necessary components of responding to the reality of a growing population, an aging population and a world where viruses continue to evolve. 

And don’t get me started on the need for exercise, stress reduction, nutritious food and an overall healthy environment!

We’ve taken health care for granted, expected someone else to take care of this for us.

This has to stop. 

Health care is an individual and social responsibility. We are all responsible for health care and we need to support our governments in making the mental transition to working with us to make it part of economic planning.

Happy Holy Days

Happy Canada Day

Compare us to any other country in the world in terms of our work at making this a better world and we are hard to beat.

And we will keep trying to make this a better world, even though sometimes some people have a difficult time acknowledging our progress.

Enjoy your rights and freedoms Canadians and thank people like John A. MacDonald without whom there would be no Canada and no Charter of Rights and Freedoms to enjoy.

Kate Clanchy – How to Grow Your Own Poem

As I continue this “Morphment” to Kevin Alan McGill, Social Philosopher Poet and Storyteller, I picked up this amazing book – How to Grow Your Own Poem by Kate Clanchy. And it is just wonderful.

Kate is a poet and teacher that I came across taking one of those free courses from FutureLearn. The course comes from the University of Reading in England. She was one of their featured lecturers. And as soon as she started talking, I thought “Wow! Here’s someone I can really learn from!”

Her book is about how to create a poem construction process for yourself. It provides exercises and examples to help you get your ideas out and to shape them according to the you that you are.

ISBN 13-978-1529024692 Picador Press an imprint of Pan MacMillan

The Evolution continues

As I further shift my identification to Kevin Alan McGill, Social Philosopher Poet and Storyteller, I continue to develop my website including the K.S.E.A. – Democracy Project at kevinalanmcgill.com . Hope to see you there.

Impending retirement of The Possible Ks

About 8 years ago, when I first started out on this writing journey, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write. So I came up with the idea of The Possible Ks. I was going to experiment with styles and shapes and media and present them as Sat K, and The Poet K, and Citizen K, etc.

Well, my writing has evolved and my sense of self along with that.

So I am going to be retiring The Possible Ks concept.

It’s time to consolidate my alter egos and just be Kevin Alan McGill, Social Philosopher Poet and Storyteller. I am channeling my “inner beatnik” to come up with socially conscious poetry, flash fiction, lyrics and satire.

Part of that development is changing my HostPapa website domain to kevinalanmcgill.com.

I will be developing that site along the same lines as my possible ks site, focusing on graphic illustrations as my primary blogging tool. 

So if you’d like to join me on the new site just click on the link and sign up there to get email notices when I post. No purchase necessary. The new posts have already started.

I’d be glad to hear from you.

Camera Captures

I have taken a ton of pictures from The Arctic to The Caribbean to Europe. And I have decided to start sharing some of these on my website. Photos like this:
