"Down Home" Poem Explanation!

          Usually you don't see me posting twice in the same day, but I mentioned to hubby that I wanted to explore the idea of reading my poems onto some sort of audio recording. He said: "You can do that on your camera!"
      I figured I needed some sort of visual to go along with my reading, so I asked hubby, who draws the best stick people I know, to draw the depictions of one of my poems...the one I call "Down Home".  I'll share the poem with you tomorrow, but I needed him to explain some of the things he drew first. You'll see what I mean...if the video works! ^_^ And forgive the darkness, the out-of-focus-ness. We're doing this for the first time!...Maybe the last time!!! LOL Experimenting...at our age!! (Too much time on our hands! LOL) So, here goes!! Be prepared to hear us!....HOPEFULLY! ^_^

        YAY!! It works!...And I figured out what I was doing wrong, as to why it wouldn't stay posted. I wasn't uploading it with the "video" icon!...*smh* Sometimes it takes me a minute to learn these things! ^_^ But now...."I GOT IT!!!" LOL


Home

The place where I am at my best.
A place of calm and peace and rest.

The place from which I never roam.
'Cause it's in my heart, this place called home!

  1. Deb and hubby, I really enjoyed watching this and hearing your voices. I hope that you will consider doing it as a once a week feature. Loved both of your voices. Your husbands drawings are great.

  2. Oh, I just LOVED that!! Hearing your voices and laughter - by the end you had me laughing out loud... All I can say is that I never want to play opposite your hubby in Pictionary - he's good!!

    Much love, Silke

  4. Silke, :-)) I'm so glad you liked it! I have to say though, it's very weird hearing your own voice! I didn't think I sounded like me at all, but hubby says "Yeah!! That's you alright!!" LOL And F.Y.I., I insist that he be on my team when we play Pictionary!!! ^_^ Thanks so much for the feedback and the nice words!

  12. Mariann, Ha! Ha! I expected my voice to be totally different too!!! ^_^ It was weird hearing myself the way other people hear me...And I didn't like it! LOL What did you think I sounded like?!...Honest now!...Oh well....gotta deal with what I have! ^_^ And I don't know about the further videos thing. We'll see. But I thank you for the encouragement anyway. :-)

  13. Yeah, I know about hearing yourself in a video or some other recordings. I hate that. I sound much better normally! At least I think so! LOL
    I guess I just imagined your voice to be a bit higher ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ah! Yes! I only make it higher when I'm mimicking 'Baby Wuglyee'! ^_^

  18. You two are SO silly! That was a very interesting explanation of the pictures lol

    I think every month you two should have a video segment - ooo, maybe even have him crochet something lol!

  19. Denise, Ha! Ha! Ha! Oh My!!!! Have my husband crochet something?!!! If only you knew how funny that is!!! LOL I think it would be better letting you see him dance.
