all things . . . VOICE !

And that’s the way it is . . .

   Among voices I remember vividly from youth is that of CBS anchor Walter Cronkite.  His is one of those voices when heard, has instant recognition across generational lines, certainly among baby boomers.  In my case, his distinctive sound accompanied a course image on black and white televisions that were the norm until just about when I left home.

I did not always have this appreciation for “America’s most trusted news man”.  How my siblings and I would wage war when Dad exercised authority over viewing content, switching to the news from cartoon episodes we enjoyed. ( Those were the days when one actually walked across the room to change to one of the other FOUR channels, perhaps adjusting aluminum foil on the antennae. )  Nevertheless, this deep rich voice presided over breaking news now in history books.  I do remember a strangely different Walter Cronkite as he reported the surreal events around the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Cronkite’s report ended nightly with ” . . and that’s the way it is”.  He died at the age of 92 at his home in New York.

Indulging my passion for the world of spoken word, public speaking and voice talent,  there is not surprisingly a virtual avalanche of discovery on the world wide web.  Really overwhelmed, I had the good fortune to stumble upon terrific, practical how-to blog building content in Pat Flynn’s podcast on Smartpassiveincome.com  ( follow Pat on Twitter @PatFlynn )

Though not viewing Pat’s site content with the same game plan as much of his online community, I did get much needed organization tips and a jump start in the direction I want to take my blog.  It is so often in just knowing how to start.

And that’s the way it is . . .
