Day 1125: Finding my way

It seems like every day I’m finding my way.

What helps you find your way, every day?

Here are some visuals that helped me find my way, yesterday:










Three weekends from today, I’m finding my wayout of Boston to audition for the TV show “The Voice.”

I’ve found  out — through “The Voice” website —  that an optional part of that audition process is to submit a video of my audition  song to the Voice staff ahead of time, for some pointers  and — perhaps! — finding my way ahead of the audition crowd.

When I do find my way to the audition site in Philadelphia on February 21, I’ll be finding my way through my audition song (which will probably be “Soothe” by Todd Rundgren) without any accompanying instruments. Now I’m finding my way, here, to share this a capella rendition of “Soothe.”

It occurs to me that it’s taken me one thousand, one hundred, and twenty-five days to find my way to showing you what I look and sound like, while singing. 

If you find a way to give me feedback about that video, I’ll be finding my way to reply back.

Why am I finding my way to audition for “The Voice,” when the odds are unlikely  I’ll find myself on the show? Because this is all part of my way of finding my way out of fear.

Finding my way on WordPress always includes thanks to you, my readers, for helping me find my way here.

  3. You have a great voice!!! Best of luck to you..

  4. Seems like you already won. Enjoy the trip.

  5. “finding my way out of fear”…what a wonderful motivation, Ann.❤️ It seems you have already won with that one.
    Such a lovely voice…wishing you only the best experience with all this. 🎼

  6. What a post. Love your cartoons 🙂

  7. “Keep your eyes open & your feet moving forward. You’ll find your way.” — any cat



  8. What a nice voice you have! I also love the cartoon you posted about the bed and cats. I had a cat and I can relate.

  9. You have a beautiful voice, Ann! And “Soothe” is a good song for you voice. I think we have a winner! Now we’ll just have to see if the Voice realizes that. 🙂

  10. A funny thing happened. Because my home wifi is very temperamental I could have given up but I’m glad I didn’t.
    Your talent and bravery are admirable and so is your willingness to keep trying.

  11. I really admire your courage and how you are stepping into this Ann. Thank you for sharing your vulnerable heart and voice. You are awesome ❤️

  12. You sound great, unlike me I sound like someone is trying to strangle me

  13. Hey, Ann! I loved hearing –and seeing! — you sing! You have The Voice!

  14. This is very brave, Ann. I think you have faced fear by entering this process. I did not know about this song and like it very much. Good luck. Wow. And that container of stones–that would soothe me.

  15. I will start by saying I loved the map of the cat bed, the stones in a jar, and those tissue paper flowers. I think it admirable that you are facing your fear and getting out there and auditioning for The Voice- you have a beautiful voice- so clear and sweet. Will you be passing through NJ on the way to Philly or are you flying?

  16. impressive… i admire you’re courage…
