Audio: Virgin Ears

Happy Friday, friends!

Today I have some audio for you (my poem, "Virgin Ears"). Many of the comments I received on that poem were in reference to reading it aloud (thanks for that, everyone!), so I thought I'd give it a try.

It was a fun one to read out loud--you were right! I am trying stop my rather bad habit of apologizing when it is unnecessary (sorry about that), and this poem is sort of about this. When we apologize to someone, we are assuming responsibility for something, which isn't always fair. I want to do this more mindfully and when there is good reason.

  1. Thank you, Hannah. Lovely to hear the poem read aloud. Have a great weekend.

  2. Oh, Hannah!! This is triumphant! I missed the poem when you first posted it. There is such strength in your words. xoxoxoox

  3. I had missed this too (unusual) but I am glad I heard it now. I don't buy pardons anymore unless of course I feel that they are genuine. Wishing you a great weekend!

    PS- each time I hear you I am sure I tell you that you have voice as clear as clear water! love it

  4. Pardon, Mademoiselle! Your poetry reading is beautiful, as usual.
