I am in the homestretch on the book-writing project! The deadline is tomorrow and I have only four chapters left to write. Time to really focus! (That training as a litigator comes in handy at times.)
For those I haven't already greeted this year: Happy New Year! (At what point do we stop saying that? Is it the middle of January? The end?)
As you might imagine, I'm busy with a lot of activities for 2015. You're not going to read much about those, yet. Mainly, I'm working on my book. (Tentative title) Integrative Law will be published by the American Bar Association later this year. Before that, I need to write it.
Contribute to the book?
Many of us went to law school to change the world, to create world peace, to make a difference. We may not always have careers that do that and we may not share our passions in public - after all, we don't want to appear undignified, idealistic or grandiose. In private conversations, hundreds of lawyers have shared their secret hopes and dreams with me and I have seen many of them fulfill on those early dreams. I've seen the real bigness of lawyers, the power to be evolutionaries and world changers.
Would you like to join me in South Africa?
My circumnavigation is going very well. I've spent time with beautiful people and I've seen some amazing places. If you are interested in the itinerary, it is on the home page of www.jkimwright.com. The map is clearly NOT the territory.

The map in the graphic is my itinerary for the next few weeks!
Sometimes when a post has photos, the email newsletter formatting is challenging. Visit the on-line link to see it with proper formatting. On the home page, click the title to see the whole post.
I post a lot of updates on social media, but I’ve been slack about updating here. I hope you are all following me on Twitter or Facebook. If not, I invite you to do so to keep up to date in more real time.
I’m going to attempt to catch you up and point you in the direction of some upcoming events. For more information, visit the hot links or email me.
Is your 2013 to-do list done? The year is nearly over and the time to finish all our lists is upon us. I sometimes find myself wishing I had it all done, but I remind myself that the end of year is not relevant to 'real' deadlines and that if I got it all done, I'd just create the next to-do list anyway. Knowing that still doesn't stop me from trying to get it done, but at least I realize it is a game.
Kim's on a roll with articles this season. In addition to the November cover story of Kosmos Journal, a related article was the first article in the UK Journal for the Association for Management Education and Development, November 30.
Some excerpts are here and the full article is attached below.
"Kosmos is a journal for the New Civilization, integrating spirit with nature for the global common good. Kosmos Journal publishes the voices of leading edge, visionary thinkers and actors in building the emerging global culture."
I'm proud to say that they published my article in the November issue. Here is a link.
Many of you know that I visited the Hague Institute for Internationalisation of Law (HiiL), while I was in the Netherlands in July. I spent some time with the staff there, informing them of the many innovations of which I was aware. Little did I know, that it would come back to haunt me! There are 93 nominees and I know many of them. I can only vote for one in each category. I'd love to vote for them all. They're really impressive.
