I host weekly Zoom meetings with about 20-25 people in attendance and so do a lot of public speaking these days. Actually, I’ve been speaking in public for many years as I’m not shy in the least and if I can get an audience I’ll take advantage of them.
So – with that, I thought I’d try something new with this blog – I’ll read and record poetry and short stories and post them on here for, perhaps, a small break from the day for our readers. Maybe you’ll listen on a commute, when bored or just to hear me screw up sometimes (that will happen). I hope you enjoy this and let me know what you think in your comments please.
