Someone with a Great Voice

His voice is of a gentle man.

I enjoy the sound of our friend Jeff’s voice. Usually the only voices that I notice are those that I find irritating.

We’ve known Jeff for about 10 years. Each and every time he speaks, I am surprised by the gentleness and its calming effect. I’ve told him that he should read childrens stories for audio tapes. He thinks that I am joking but I am not.

Jeff is quite a character alright. He acts like a crusty hillbilly but has the gentlest spirit. His voice cannot hide who he really is… nature loving, sentimental and kind. Most people wouldn’t take the time to get to know him since he sports a long beard and a pistol in a holster. Jeff says that he really doesn’t like people and prefers to be left alone but I watched him change an elderly man’s flat tire without a moment’s delay. He was polite and eager to help.

Please do not tell him that I can see his soft side! He works so very hard to be tough.

If you close your eyes and listen to his voice, there is no question about his heart.

  1. Is there any possibility of getting him to read a children’s book, and you record it? Maybe you could play the tape on your blog, and/or send the recording in to a book reading company. He might be able to really start doing something he loves doing, and get paid for it, too.

    You know what they say, “Do work you love, and it’s not work”

    • Maybe I can convince him. (he has been sober for 18 months and has realized how wonderful life is without alcohol!) He always was a kind man but it’s much easier to see now!

Tell me something good...
