Won't you be my neighbor?" - Fred Rogers

Wow, Heather.  That is incredible.  It is creepy and beautiful and moving and ... I don't know.  I think I have to go out into the sunshine for a little while now; excuse me.

Thank you for sharing this rather incredible piece.

*hugs*

*nod* I agree, it's good, a little creepy, and moving.

Might want to consider getting a "pop filter" (easy to make as a home made thing too) if you want to do more recordings. Google it to get an idea of what I'm referring to.

Thank-you for saying so. It is the first time that I have
"published" any of my own stuff. Thanx for the suggestion,
"pop filter" is that like a foam rubber cover for the mike?

You should have heard her perfecting it.  She would be going along great and then she would do a Porky Pig.  Tha tha tha tha's all.  But she worked on it and finally got it to the version you hear.

It is a little creepy, but is so true.  And I think to poem is in her blog.

It couldn't be, because I don't hear the "Oh Darn it" every 2 minutes or so.

The recording only lasts two minutes or so.  :P

See!  It only took hours to get one minute.  But I love you anyway, Hon.  :icon_love:

But isn't that how artists work?  That 30-second gem you see on TV took them 3 days to shoot.  And how many more to paste together?

 ;)

Kind of, it's that "disk" you see in front of a mic when you see someone doing an audio recording. It takes the hardest "punch" off of Ps and Ks and such.
I made mine with an old wire coathanger and a piece of torn up old pantyhose.
It's a poorly constructed thing, but it does the trick.

Hello sis........
Thank you thank you, thank you for the wonderful reading.  Your voice is very pretty, btw, and very feminine.   I love hearing readings that are so expressive......it captivates the attention.  Creepy?  I don't think so, but then maybe it appeals to my dark Irish side
You're a talented poetess......I hope you do more with your gift luv.
