It is so cool to hear your voice and see you read. Beautiful post. It seems weird that we have been writing and connecting for almost two years and that is the first time I have heard your voice. It is amazing. Thank you for sharing this. I am in love with hearing writers read their work now...
It's wonderful to finally hear your voice. I see a lot of colour here, and feel it too. x
Thanks so much for posting this - it's amazing to see and hear you read these words. They are amazing words, and your voice and face are so full of love and determination that they become even more amazing. Love to you.
LOVE this! Thanks for sharing. It's really mind boggling to think few of us have actually met in real life. This was wonderful.
So sweet to see and hear you :) Love you art - love your words xxx
Such wonderful words. I agree with erica, there is so much love and determination in your voice. I think this post is so amazing, particularly considering how very soon after Lyra's death it was written. Such grief combined with such clarity of expression and perspective. Your love for your daughter is so present in all that you create, your beautiful artwork and your beautiful words x
I find it completely amazing to think that you wrote something so profound and beautiful so soon after Lyra's death. Thank you for sharing your voice with us via Angie's project.
I love this color idea and as I came across your blog only recently, I like hearing how you got started in this space.
Colors...do they exist? I guess, but certainly being viewed with a different kind of lens than before. Thank you for sharing.
what a lovely voice you have. thank you! i must try this
Thankyou for sharing Rachel. I really love the analogy of colour that you speak of. I'm sorry to see you here taking part in this amazing project but I'm really glad you did. Missing Lyra. xo
oh I am loving this project!!! To see and hear the lovely bloggers behind their words. What an awesome first post you had. Love love love.xxxx
I too picked up on your determination. You have such spunk, Rach.I will always miss Lyra with you.xo
Oh wow. I loved the post written... but to hear it aloud by your voice... breath-taking. That was wonderful (no nails on chalkboard anywhere). But I have to disagree on something: Girl, you ARE a writer, whether you give yourself that label or not. :)Wishing you all the colours in the world! Much love to you... xoxo
I just read this before coming upon your post - And when your eyesfreeze behindthe grey windowand the ghost of lossgets in to you,may a flock of colours,indigo, red, green,and azure bluecome to awaken in youa meadow of delight.- and then you say it over again.I love your words. Thank you. So sorry Lyra isn't here. x
This post is just so beautiful as are you. I am so sorry your sweet Lyra is not here in your arms. xx
Rachel - this is beautifully read. I remember reading this very first post of yours and understanding the grey/ black rather than the colors that once were. It is wonderful to hear your voice and to hear you say your daughters name. Beautiful!
I think that your a wonderful and perfect writer and that you have given such a beautiful spoken word about Lyra. It is just so good to see your beautiful face and hear your voice.
I remember reading this post...I love that you read it to us now and I can see your face and your expressions. Lyra is indeed honoured as you continue your journey.
So incredibly beautiful, you are such an amazing person & I feel so lucky to call you a friend!!
I really love your post! I hadn't read it before so I'm glad that you picked it.
There is hope and beauty, despite the pain. You are proof of that. Thank you for sharing your heart.
Thank you for sharing - wonderful to hear your words...
A life or an existence. That is something I feel like I work on everyday. This was a beautiful post and you are a wonderful speaker.
