All previously made obligations that entailed the use of my voice have been completed. I can now begin my endeavor in earnest.
During my brief hiatus away from writing about this piece, i have only spoken while training the aforementioned couple. Having not spoken otherwise, silence has become my norm. I enjoy it, and my voice has become harsh and unpleasant to me. When i briefly spoke, it was as if i was listening to a recording of myself. The sound was grating and somehow, foreign.
It is with new resolve that i continue my project. I cannot allow anything or anyone to hinder its progress. In this first stage, i have already become acutely aware of all noise. Most of all, my own.
