I’m back up the mountain waxing philosophical.
Today is about voices – voices we share, voices we miss, voices that bring our stories to life. And sometimes, Life forces you to let go and face up to how fear of failure can rob you of opportunities. I ponder my own lifelong fear of failure through an emotional tale about my mom’s passing and how that impacted my progress with voice-acting. You will hear a story my mom wrote when I was a kid that I voiced right after she passed to help with my grief and an interview we did together for an episode of Daily Adventure Tales – just so I could hear her voice once more. I’ll share how my voice-acting journey is at present and a snippet from my first professional commercial demo. We will also hear the voices and stories of five BCs, Mary, Susie, Kevin from NY, Jodi from the South, and a BC who is anonymous, who used Speakpipe or called the Bravery Hotline. We’ll wrap up with exciting news from our singer-songwriter in residence Fionna Lane and hear the title track from her new alum, Like a Babe.
This is the stunning view from the next-to-top Zen place on the day I recorded 130.
If you look at the top of my hat, you will see the rainbow circling me.
