Ruthie,

I just recorded a one take minute of my thoughts about Librivox. I hope this is the sort of thing you are looking for. I could have said so much more, such as thanking various people by name but I knew in the short time I had I could not name them all, so I decided not to name any.

If this is not what you are looking for please let me know!

Here's mine, Ruth. https://librivox.org/uploads/ruthieg/podcast10anni_law.mp3

Just a bit over one minute. Sorry the sound quality isn't great -- the house was noisy (haha - you'll see why I am laughing when you listen) and I had to do some very amateurish noise-cleaning.

I can easily trim it down if the beeps get too annoying by the end.

Did you remember the song I submitted to the collection? You said it was more suitable for the podcast.

Listening now but I can't get past the first song! I like it so much that I keep rewinding to listen to it again. :) Definitely going to clip it out and add it to my iTunes. I love hearing all those familiar and unfamiliar voices, and the lyrics are marvelous. Beautiful job, Ruth!
