K is for Ken which goes beyond Kith and Kin.

Day 12 of Blogging from A to Z.  Today’s letter is K 

K is for Ken which goes beyond Kith and Kin.

Kith and Kin, originally our land and people – now family, are a package deal.  There is no choice involved unless you consider the reincarnationist belief that the soul chooses to whom it is reborn.  But as at birth, the soul promptly forgets that choice however good or arbitrary, the belief is moot.  Our kith and kin for good or ill are ours.

Ah, but ken.  That is a different story.  Here choice enters in, and a large part of who we are is informed by the choices we make.

There are those people we meet in life that we instantly recognize as a kindred soul.  You know them; they know you.  You share a vision of the universe and fall in step for a time or forever.  That is ken.
