Oh yes, I know it’s you…
…I recognise your voice!
Those who know us well never fail to recognise our voice, even if we only say a word or two. They know us by our intonation, our accent, our pitch, how fast we speak, where we take our breath, and so much more.
And even those who aren’t as familiar know us when we speak. Especially if we are talking about something real and resonant for us.
Only when we try to be someone else does it sound odd. Or off. And the connection we’re looking for isn’t there.
We need to hear your voice because only you can be you. Beautifully.
