    • Thank you so much Cindy, The Arborist was written by Jay Maria Simpson, and the first time I read it to myself, I was moved and read it again out loud:) When I told her, she asked if I would like to record it and…now we have the result. I am so happy she enjoyed my recitation enough to post it:) Was a surprise for me to see it in the morning:) Thank you so much for this uplifting comment 🙏❤️🙏

    • Kaushal, I’m so sorry, I just saw your beautiful comment now…I had somehow missed it, when you made it on Feb 4th!! Thank you so much for all your kind words on my voice too. I have never done the news, but I have been hired to do voice overs for some architectural projects and for a university program about diabetes. That’s about it, besides my videos with Natascha…and now my own. Thank you again for what you said… One can dream:):) 🌹❤️🤗
