One from the vaults...

Every so often, I run into myself. Yesterday, I came across a radio interview that I did last November for the Culinary Media Network. Of all the interviews that I did, I felt that was one of my favorites and I never promoted it. As I listened to it, I forgot that I discussed the experience opening the boxes from my life in London a couple of years ago. What's funny is that I just happened to be writing about this yesterday, as part of my second book. We also talk a lot about "one day" and the loss of plans that so many of us make for "one day..." That struck me, as two good friends of mine lost a parent in the past two weeks.

The funny thing about interviews. You never know where the subject is at the time of the whole thing. In this case, I was sitting outside the place our in-laws rented for Thanksgiving in Bend, Oregon. The kids were playing Xbox, the dog was barking and so I opted to sit outside -- in 34 degrees. I was looking out at the snow. Hence, if you listen to this, why I sound so shivering, cold and downright sniffly.

At the the end, we talk about how I plan to write about "How Kathleen lost 20 pounds" on my blog. As an update, I've 14 pounds since January. I'm down to 37.9 percentage body. I still have another eight to 10 pounds to go...

Way to go Kathleen, on the interview and the losing weight. I can't imagine how much butter and cream you must have consumed at culinary school.

How interesting you think of your book as one on personal identity, I can really see that, makes a lot of sense why I loved it so much. I am going through my own personal journey through food, just food at home since I can't go to school.

We are constantly evolving and I think going for your dream is so important, right now. Not tomorrow, now.

I am glad you found the writer in you. It helps me believe that I can bring back to life the writer in me. University ran her carcass over 14 years ago.

So wonderful to hear your voice and listen to your story. Can't wait for the movie and for the next book.

Just heard part of your interview on Rick Kogan's show on WGN here in Chicago. When will that be up?

Can't wait to read your book!
