To my clique

With today’s challenge I’m fulfilling the Being Seen objective not in one but two different ways at the same time (talk about over-achieving). I’m not only sharing my deepest thoughts but am also doing so in a (gasp!) video. 

I’ve been dreading photos for a very long time and videos force me to face not just how I look but also how I speak – none of which are my favourite traits. I do like this particular piece I wrote a while ago though so I hope the content will make up for the rest πŸ˜‰

So without further ado:

    How very courageous of you! I could’t do it- nope- no chance. I love your accent. (Mine is a horrible US Midwestern accent so I do envy folks who have beautiful accents.) Your words are so gentle and loving and I really liked how kindness was weaving in and out. Kindness is one of my things. πŸ™‚

    “You can start a storm from your breath!” LOVE that. Did you make it up or is it from something? Congrats on the video. That is on my ”to-do” list.

  8. This is written and spoken so beautifully. You have just done a very brave thing that most of us would never attempt, although you may have inspired a few to follow in your footsteps.

    A beautiful piece and beautifully spoken. Can you post a printed version, too? I’ve come to an age at which I often use captions to help me understand. Love your earrings!

    Amazing video and beautiful piece. Video is something I have been shying away from so I understand how courageous it is to take that step. A post to be extremely proud of. πŸ™‚ – Marie The Articulate Image
