    … and hello again. We found this blog when updating to the new website. It was gone and sort of forgotten as you can see, as  the last entry was 5-years ago. I loved reading it again — I was blogging here before I started the New World Kirtan podcast, and if you scroll down you can read entries that relate to that. I’ll […]

    There is a river flowing now very fast.  It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
    They will try to hold on to the shore.  They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
    Know that the river has its destination.
    The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, k […]

    Several of my friends have asked for my Mom’s pizzelle recipe, and I’m happy to share it here.  But get ready to dive in, as there are many schools of thought as to what makes the perfect pizzelle.
    In our extended family there’s an unresolved schism over pizzelles.  Several of us insist th […]

    Well . . .  at that point over a year ago I decided to move the Kitzie’s Voice blog to Blogger–the reason why now escapes me.  Then Blogger (and Google) lost this blog, and several months of content, and has been unable to find it despite numerous emails to various support entities at both organizations–damn your eyes […]

    I’ve been away from my home/studio for almost 3 weeks . . . way too long. I was in Philadelphia for several weeks taking care of my Mom after knee replacement (that’s another story). But now I’m in Cape Cod with my husband’s family. This isn’t my first time, I’ve been here twice before. But this time I think I finally get it. […]

    . . . and stuck to all my senses.”
    – Joni Mitchell “Chelsea Morning”
    Summer has arrived in the Pacific Northwest, and this weekend was glorious. Up to now, we’ve been having “Juneuary”. I think we’ve invented a new word out here. Anyway, it has been a cold, wet spring and it is wonderful […]

    Last night my youngest son graduated from high school. It was a surreal experience. The hall was filled with parents I recognized dating back to grade school. At soccer games and football games we stood together, huddled under umbrellas. We suffered through grade school band concerts together. We’ve talked to each other on the […]

    You know you’re in voiceover if you recognize the voices doing commercials, narrations, etc. on TV as friends or colleagues you’ve met at a seminar. Or if “Name The Celebrity Voicing That TV Commercial” is a common game at your house. You’re a VO if someone can refer to “Four Guys In A Limousine&#8221 […]

    Back when I decided to blog, I wasn’t sure of what I wanted to say, and what audience I wanted to address. I’m still not sure how that will develop. But as I continue with the blog, I find I like the process of writing a lot. Why? Because it’s interesting. I have to dig deep to find an authentic place to write from. […]
