- LibriVox is my legacy
Because I have no little crumb snatchers... yet.
- Every year, on my birthday, I begin the new year. Don't get me wrong, I'll pop bottles on the 31st with the rest of the rot gut sinners but that is just because I love champagne. My birthday is on the 7th of February and that is when I begin my year anew- complete with resolutions- rather policies, that I believe will greatly improve my chances of happiness and make easier my wish to consistently avoid heartache, failure, illness, death and misadventure- not necessarily in that order.
One of the ideas I've come up with and have implemented is the idea of donating my artistic skills to Librivox. Librivox.org has supplied me with countless hours of pleasure and I like the whole concept of what they are offering. I began by volunteering my velvety vocal chords and production skills by providing my services as a Librivox reader; you can find three of my projects in the Short Ghost & Horror Collection Volume 011. You'll find my silky vocals on the following stories: The Murder Hole, The Horned Women and The Murderer. Titles that sound beastly, for sure but I love scary stories and could hardly imagine myself reading a 17th century romance novel. Barf.
One of my other passions, however, is creating artwork and instead of creating cover art for the librivox.org stories for myself and my iTunes library alone, I decided to offer my artwork to the librivox.org catalog... On a daily basis. Yup. I'm going to do one every day. It's going well, so far.
One of my favorite authors of all time is G.K. Chesterton. I started off by doing several of his works. I have since branched off into other authors but as of today, you will find links to the works I've completed below.
