Listening to Our Voice

Our Voice

“One advantage of talking to yourself is that you know at least somebody’s listening.”

Franklin P. Jones, Reporter & Humorist

Most discussions about listening are centered on listening to another person.  Rarely, do we consider are capacity to hear our own voice. Many times, we believe others before we trust our judgment or intuition. How foolish we are.

Duane Michals, American photographer known for his innovative use of photo-sequences and incorporating text to examine emotions and philosophy, once said, “Trust that little voice in your head that says ‘wouldn’t it be interesting if…’ and then do it.”

Let’s do it!

If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”

Vincent Van Gogh
