Sue, thank you for the additional reference and the interesting read.

Here is the recording. I think you will be pleased---if you wish to listen---by how I place the notes at the end of the recording. It seems like an elegant enough solution.

The Checker tells me I'm overlong, but that must not be a hard and fast rule?

Wild Apples

Hi Kevin, Thanks for contributing Wild Apples to volume 65! I think Thoreau will prove a winner with our listeners! :) Your solution with the footnotes was, indeed, a good one; I hadn't thought of doing that, but it works out well. Timing at just over 60 minutes is fine; no problem there. I've put Wild Apples in the Magic Window, and now our dedicated proof listener, Craig, will PL your recording for you.

I can't tell you how delighted I am. I've loved this piece since learning of it ... and not that long ago.

Thanks Kevin :D

Very well read and a great appreciation of the apple by Thoreau :thumbs:

A few errors noted.

9:07 Some such notion, still surviving, may account for some of the stones which we see placed to be overgrown in the forks of trees. – you read stories for stones

17:57 Nay, they spring up wild and bear well there in the midst of pines, birches, maples, and oaks. Inserted say – they say spring up

21:25-22:06 grinding noise in the background 22:35 -22:42 again

Craig, thank you very, very much for the close reading. (Hahah! 'Stories' for 'stones'! How in the world did that happen?)

I made the corrections as best as I could, but I don't know if any of it will be satisfactory. I have such trouble controlling my voice over the length of a day, that I usually record not in one take, of course, but always at one sitting. I tried re-recording full sentences, but they come out as rather husky this morning. Instead, I tried inserting and filtering like a mad scientist. It's a real problem for me.

Hi Garth, Thanks for contributing to volume 65! :) A most interesting article; the section on kite photography can't help but bring to mind analogies between kites and drones!

Thanks, Kevin, for this well-read essay about Michelangelo as poet! :) The book of poetry would make a nice "duet" read for LibriVox, with the poems in Italian, followed by William Wells Newell's English translations. I was particularly taken with the poem XXII, on page 25:

If my rude hammer lend enduring stone
Similitude of life, being swayed and plied
By arm of one who doth its labor guide,
It moveth with a motion not its own;
But that on high, which lieth by God's throne,
Itself, and all beside makes beautiful ...

Yes! I think so too! I just don't know how to make this proposal.

I'm in the middle of recording the madrigals now but don't know the next step.

PLing or DPLing on-going projects sometimes can lead to collaboration. If you speak Italian, or any Romance language for that matter (I note your interest in Brazilian culture, so perhaps you speak Portuguese?), you could probably help out on a project such as this one viewtopic.php?f=60&t=62832 which is listed in the thread "Readers Wanted, Languages Other than English" viewforum.php?f=60 , PLing might lead you to a conversation with some one who might be interested in a Michelangelo duo.

As an aside, Leni is an active promoter and reader of Brazil's classic literature here on LibriVox.

Thanks Kevin.

Your reading reminded me of the film The Agony and the Extacy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Agony_and_the_Ecstasy_(film)

One error noted:

25:40 that external objects suggest the perfection they do not include, you read eternal objects p. xx
