Ever since returning from my very relaxing vacation two weeks ago, I’ve been thankfully busy with a number of sizeable voiceover projects. I regret that I’ve been preoccupied here and in the social media scene. But life calls my attention to myriad details beyond the booth and my identity as a voice actress. Heck it took me a week to get all the mail wrangled. Life is good, however, and I hope everyone reading this is having a wonderful last fling of summer weekend.
We’ve invited my college daughter’s girlfriend to join us for our barbecue dinner this evening. Her friend works hard babysitting and managing her own apartment of other college roomates she rents rooms out to. Her family resides out of the area, so this evening, she’ll join with ours.
I am reflecting on my own thankfulness this “Labor Day” holiday, of having much voiceover work to labor over, and live a comfortable life. Funny, it doesn’t feel like too much labor, most of the time, because I am passionate about the art of it. And it’s fun!
I am also thinking of the many others in this country this Labor Day, who are not as fortunate to have a job , and desperately need work to provide for themselves and their families. I am hoping these challenging times in country’s job and economic climate are overcome sooner rather than later.
I know I’m doing whatever I can to spur economic growth!
On a related note, I came across an inspiring blog post by “The Social Maven“, Pam Lawthorne, ” I wanted to share here. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
