I remember going to Warner Bros. studios and seeing this picture in a frame and for some reason, it brought tears to my eyes. There was something about knowing that the "voice" behind those characters would no longer speak for them.
Your voice conveys so much.
I have struggled with the phenomenon of texting and even blogging at times. I'm a listener that enjoys hearing the voice behind the person. Words can be easily misconstrued while texting and even blogging but hearing the voice, brings out realness and for the most part, sincerity. I can hear a person's smile in their voice. I love hearing laughter, whether on the phone or in person.
There's a reason that kids can't read at a certain age...because listening, hearing, imitating, talking, singing...it's so important.
I was talking to a friend that said that he knew that his marriage was in trouble when he and his wife were in the same room, at least 10 feet away, and instead of talking to one another, they were sending each other emails. That's sad.
Lately, I've found myself struggling with writing a blog post. My mind wanders away to people that are struggling in Japan, Libya and in our own country. I feel like the cartoon characters - speechless. I am praying that in the midst of all that goes on around me, that I will find my voice and it will be one of encouragement, support and love and most of all, hope.
