... (with a wee bit more to record), this is what I sound like?!
Came out of nowhere last night.
I did consider just whispering to you, but that might be a little weird.
Sooo, I'm hunkered down with hot Apple Cider Vinegar tea, lemon and honey.
And a burning message to share with you! Or is that a fever?
Normally, the shows will come out on Mondays.
But this initial one will come as soon as my voice returns. Which I trust will be soon.
I also trust this unwanted delay comes with a benefit of some sort. Even if just the reminder to me to be more at ease with beginnings.
The question "How are you?" is PROFOUND.
But it has been watered-down to a synonym for "Hello."
Forced or fake auto-responses of obligated okay-ness are expected.
(And if you are going through something tragic, it really doesn't matter! Every social encounter OPENS with this well-established Ritual of Insincerity.)
The question "How are you?" prompts an answer that begins with "I AM _____________."
This means many times each day, you are invited to SPEAK THE MOST POWERFUL STATEMENT that can be spoken of yourself.
And the socially-expected thing to do, is be QUICK + SLICK with your answer.
For a change... TAKE YOUR TIME, and tell your truth. ✍🏾
