A Counting: Take Two

Dried Frond in Hand

I had so much fun with this reading from Stone Crossings that I wanted to put a recent Love Notes to Yahweh prayer of confession called A Counting into audio form too.

Can't help it. I'm in the mood to play.

How nice to hear your voice at last. Thank you for sharing. And I'm looking forward to meeting you at Mt. Hermon

It's always fascinating when what little I know of someone online expands to offer a glimpse of some previously unexperienced aspect of their person. This is no exception.
You know... I'm not sure how I imagined your voice, but that wasn't it. Still, it was beautiful. Thanks. :D

It makes me wonder what it must be like to meet Christ after glimpses of his image in religious art and reading his words and feeling his presence but not knowing His physical touch and seeing his face and hearing his voice. I fear to think how wrong I may be about someone I ought to know so intimately. Our minds can't help form pictures, but how easy it is to let those pictures become our reality. Hmmm.

Interesting to see how you made the movement against--what is that a curtain? Makes me think I should do more video readings rather than gabcasts.

Also, why oh why haven't you embedded the video reading in the post over at Lovenotes to Yaweh?

Michelle... you're welcome. And I suppose that meeting in person, my voice will sound yet different! :)

Nikki... I hope you weren't too disappointed! Now, last night my voice has a touch of a "cold" coming, while the Stone Crossings reading is probably more my normal voice (whatever that means). And I loved your thoughts about Jesus and how we will be surprised.

Mark... yup, a curtain. I wanted to get that red color that's in the poem, but I didn't want a definite image because I wanted the poem to speak. And as for why I haven't embedded it, um, I haven't bothered to learn how! And I'm counting to MH too, but hadn't thought of that. How many things are truly on my mind. Sigh.

No... not disappointed. Just surprised. I like this sort of surprise. :)

Amen, L.L., Amen.

Very nice and wonderfully creative. I really appreciate that in you, and I hope even if I don't imbibe something of that for myself- and I probably actually will in some very small way or ways- I can certainly appreciate it.

Thanks, and keep that coming as you get that "mood to play." We all need that.

Yay! So fun to hear your voice again. And I love the page you created for the Mount Hermon conference! So helpful and insightful, and just what new people visiting there this year will likely want to know.

it was so great to hear your voice, to hear its inflections, to walk with you through your backyard. to hear the words you wrote that will soon be published.
so looking forward to meeting you at mount hermon, so thankful for your encouragement in that direction [got a countdown going over at lattes!]

blessings to you,
