People of Whom I Would Like To Ask--"What is your most important sound?"

As I've said before, this little project is around to foster a deeper love and understanding of the people around us. I think sometimes I limit myself by forgetting--a person's most important sound is the gateway to that person themself (wow, awful grammar there). Sometimes, I just try to get a sound and get out. But that's not the point. The sound opens windows to knowing the person better. In ordinary conversation, that sound question would give me a chance to open the person up, make them feel comfortable, and connect with them. I realize sometimes that in trying to take this project "big" I forget the entire purpose of the sound. Yes, I want to gather sounds to make my lifelong song--the song of the world--but a big part of it is meeting the actual people! Like my interview with my editor friend from the last post. I didn't just grab a sound and get out. We talked! Granted, she's a dear friend. But...

I saw an intrepid lady on the metro last month who dashed through and got herself stuck in the doors. She was so determined to get on, and I wanted to meet her. But I was so shy--me, shy!--and did not ask her my sound question, or any other question, or even say hi. I'll regret it forever! So all that said, I hope I remember to talk to people and find out about them in the future. So many wonderful people all around us to find out about! Not to sound Pollyannish.

But there are people I'd like to meet--to get beyond the controversies and legends, and just talk to, like people. Girl to man, woman, boy, or girl. Seeker to Most Important Sound. Face to face. I can dream.
In no particular order...this list subject to grow and shrink at a whim. "Good guys" and "bad guys" and all over.

  1. I want to share a testimony on how a spell caster (OGUN LOVE SPELL IS THE BEST) helped me in getting my EX lover back, I was married to him in 2005, ever since then I was living happily with him, but everything changed when I was unable bare him a child, so last year January I was sent out packing from his home, I went out from his house, I was in great pain, I looked worried, coz I loved him so much, I told my friend about whats going on, she introduced me to the great spell caster (ogun love spell), she gave me his email, I emailed him, he asked me to buy some items faithfully I did all he asked of me. He told me not to bother, that Im going to bear him children immediately he comes back to me, two days later my Husband came with his friends and started begging for forgiveness, and asked me to come back home, I forgive him, I went back to him, luckily I was pregnant, here I am today am now a mother, I gave birth to a set of twins, a boy and a girl, and we are living happily, DR.OGUN thank you very much, if you are passing through any hardship and you are looking for break through kindly email Dr ogun on ogunlovespelltemple@gmail.com and greatsolomonalter@outlook.com
