You may have noticed I have been dabbling with Podcasts. I don’t know if I am getting better, but I am getting more comfortable. The first one’s I recorded I read almost verbatim from the book I found them in. The book is linked to the page the podcast is available through. (Aside: Soon I need to review how podcasts show in each application to find what additional information I need to include. I’ve given proper credit and I very much enjoyed the books I’ve listed. I do hope others have the same opportunity.)
As I continued to find meditations that have made a difference in how I feel about life, about myself, about my circumstances, I have been reading and recording them into my podcast feed, but I have been updating the language. I have been adjusting the tone that I heard in the author’s writing. I have been editing how much to include and adding a point of attention for the focus that I wanted to share. This editing has only made me an editor.
The more I edited the pieces I presented the more I realized I may be ready to write my own meditations. Today I did. I recorded my meditation today as well. I’ll do the sound editing in a bit, I just want to allow myself to be thrilled about this for a moment. Writing my own, based on what I have gathered from others, following the path of the meditation genre I can only wonder if I am writing fan-meditations. (LOL. Sometimes I crack me up.)
So I will get the sound edit done and post this puppy, my baby, this new child of mine in the next couple of days. I still have recordings from readings that I have not yet posted. I can hardly keep up with myself.
Life is full and varied – to schedule anything with any certainty is sketchy at best for me. But I continue to breathe and create and practise and exercise and breathe.
