I dare you to talk with Carey Kidman and tell me you don’t feel better about yourself afterwards. You’re defenseless against her cheerful spirit. The world needs more Careys and yet only a select number of people will have the privilege of realizing her true allure because she’s a modest mouse and far removed from the limelight. Oh, the universal irony of it all. That’s precisely why her story must be written!
Carey’s gorgeous – that’s a given, but her relentless positivity gives her an air of enchantment far greater than any simple physical attraction. Instead of putting on a smile and calling it a day, she actively converts her potential positivity into noble actions to circulate the good vibes. When I met Carey in college she spoke about her experience volunteering at a nursing home on a weekly basis where she spent time talking with the elderly. I was buying outfits and alcohol for parties whilst Carey was listening to folks in the twilight of their lives reveal intimate stories and anecdotes about themselves packed with life-lessons.
Besides being a righteous babe, she’s also a congenial disposition. That means she’s fucking rad and has good taste. Carey appreciates what I consider “true” art – stuff that echoes the human spirit through various mediums: literature, paintings, music, quotes, etc.
Carey put me in touch with a few books and songs that expanded my humanistic horizon and became intertwined with my cultural repository. One novel she recommended, Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokov, was hands-down the best writing I’ve ever read. A band/song she recommended that has hit the spot time and time again is “Broadripple is Burning” by Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s: http://youtu.be/0AovtZ1Zxdw.
My undying belief that the future will be better than the present is the 1 motivating factor that provides me a guiding light in dark times (well, that and the thought of my dog, Pongo). Carey and I share this trait and she even adheres to this principle more steadfastly which is why I hold her in the highest regard.
I imagine the socio-economic system of the future will stray away from traditional capitalism as we know it and move towards a “Carey-capitalism” structure where the people who provide the most positivity and create the most happiness will be revered as the most successful.
