Chicago, IL USA:
Long before I began the Writing and Composition of:
SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature
How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race(C)2009
I created NATIONAL SMITH DAY (C)1995 in order to give special attention to The Smiths. Its January 6th date coincides with that of Captain John Smith who was the FIRST SMITH to set foot here in the States hundreds of years ago -- long before eMail and all the accoutrements that have made Life easier.
Being a KOOPERSMITH by Birth and an Original by Nature, I found upon studying my Geneology in the early 1960s that many of my Relatives on my Grandfather's side of the Family (who hailed from Germany) either dropped the KOOPER or the SMITH when they entered America, migrating as many people did at the turn of the 1900s to escape many problematic situations brewing in their homelands - never to return.
This was indeed problematic, as it took much away from the Lush-and-Richness of our Tradition. As 'America's Premier Eventologist' and 'The Premier Eventologist in The History of The World,' I was determined to change this. Now, happiy after 16 years of locating and making contact with many Smiths, my circle of Family and Friends has continued; and in due part is responsible for the Writing of SKiN -- the Book and the Movie Script which is detailed this Month exclusively in
"Why?" you may ask - because we are all encased in SKiN - a name is a way to give a description - personalized to a person, but we all know that it is what is deep down - beneath the SKiN later that counts most of all.
Again, those who are active Members of CLUB: SMITH (R) will be celebrating at one of Chicago's famous Restaurants. Pictures & Comments will be posted on YouTube in the days ahead.
CLOSING: Please stay tuned for another Segment of defining SKiN ©2009 tomorrow, which will be a Month-long Blog Series celebrating the First Year Anniversary of the Composition of this Book and Movie Script.
