How cool! Shall go and check it out.
Thanks! I never like how I sound, but it was fun to be asked and to be with the others.
We never do, do we? I hate hearing myself!!
If you’re not working, come to the next live dVerse event.
I work 8:30-5:00…
Yeah… a working stiff doing the 9-5 thing… I did try to avoid it but hey… I figure it’s a good spot to hang out until I retire. Which I can always dream will be sooner than later!
There’s something to be said for having those regular hours, too–plus being able to walk to work. And liking the people you work with.
There really is. It’s been over 8 years since I last did. AND the added medical, dental, health, pension benefits sure make it all the better. Walking to work (not in blizzards or rain, thank you very much, or in freeze-your-butt-off temps) is great. I find myself smiling on the way home. How weird is that? The people, so far, are all wonderful, so yes. I’m not complaining one bit.
Benefits are definitely not something to take for granted. I’m fortunate to have that coverage through Doug, otherwise, I’d be in bad shape. And smiling–I wouldn’t say weird, I’d say wonderful!
That’s for sure! I haven’t had any for over eight years. Looking forward to having all sorts of things that I’ve been putting off, done!
It is rather wonderful, I admit.
Now dang it. I was not able to walk today as the glare of the light was way too painful on my eye (which I scratched rather badly, somehow, Wednesday)
Oh no! 😢 Did you get something in your eye that scratched it? I hope it heals quickly! I wear contacts, so I’m so aware of the least little thing about my eyes. Hugs.
I am very much still in pain. I don’t know what I did. All I know is on Wednesday night, I felt I had something in my eye and (obviously) ended up scratching it very badly (size of half a dime). Have two sets of drops but honestly, don’t feel all that much better yet. She did say it would take at least 48 hours, which ended last night.
That is so weird, but still being in pain doesn’t sound good. 😢 I guess you might need to go back to the doctor? Hopefully, it feels better soon.
Yeah and no, not fun. I’m hoping I won’t need to. Giving it another day since it was, as she said, a really good scratch.
How exciting! Congratulations, Merril!
Thank you very much, Jill!
Congrats! He always has an interesting show. (K)
Thank you! Yes, he does.
Congratulations, Merril! It was wonderful to hear your voice. I listened to the podcast on my walk this morning. I’m a subscriber now 🙂 I have a strange relationship with my voice. I love to read out loud, and the few times I’ve recorded myself, I was always surprised by the sound of my voice. I’ve embarrassed myself by speaking loudly when I wanted to speak quietly, but these things–these embarrassments–always happen when I’m around people and I’m nervous or trying to be spontaneous. Plus I have a slight speech impediment, but … . I love it when poets read their own work 😉
Thanks so much, Marie!
I don’t like the sound of my voice either, and my stumbles in reading are a bit embarrassing, but there were only so many times I could re-record around cat meows and house sounds. 😏. I’m so not experienced with this, but I’m trying to get myself to do stuff like this–and I was so thrilled and honored to have Damien ask me.
Yeah, the part for me when I recorded my essay for Nightingale and Sparrow was how many times I had to start over … lol 😉 Like my handwriting, after awhile, things just start to fail. But think of how wonderful it is for people like me to be able to listen to your poetry. I’m so grateful for audiobooks and podcasts. They’ve expanded my access to so much literature and poetry.
Thank you! 😀
