The Author Reads Her Work

And so it begins. My next step. My little dare to myself. My unfurling a petal in the quest to bloom. I read aloud to you.
Today's selection is called "Do Not Be Afraid", a post I wrote on December 16th, 2007. I'm holding the camera, so the image bobbles as I breathe. One take, no fuss, no self judgments. Good enough. Upload it and post it.
For those of you who do not know me, this is what I sound like.


  1. Graciel, what a lovely warm soft voice you have! It sounds as I imagine you to be. Does that make sense? The words were worth listening to also. Beautiful.

  2. I am so proud of you!! this was *beautiful* xx

  3. Oh Graciel !! thanks so much for your sweet comment on my my blog , I am so glad you have found me and now I have found your blog- so wonderful !!

  4. This was PERFECT! Just what my heart needed to hear, and it was a ray of light into my day. Thank you!!!

  5. I enjoyed hearing your voice, Graciel. It is calm and reassuring and confident and encouraging, just as I imagined it would be. Very nice. :)

  6. What a wonderful message! I have a dual nature. One part of me is uber-cautious, but another part of me lives outside the box and knows few boundaries. And so my life has evolved into an ebb and flow of caution and adventure.

    By the way, Graciel, you have a beautiful and soothing voice. Thanks for sharing a bit more of yourself.

  7. I'm just catching up on everyone's blogs after my two month absence and was delighted to hear your sweet, strong voice speaking your own wise words.

    I love that you've stretched yourself to share this with us. Thank you so much Graciel.


I always appreciate the time you take to comment on my blog. Thank you for stopping by. Peace from my heart to yours. xo, Graciel
