I want to take a moment before this introspective month fades into the fifth chapter to stop and reflect briefly upon what is happening at this quarter mark through this “Living Chapters” challenge year. Last week, I was given a great opportunity to do just that.
I was invited to speak with Aaron Henkin, Baltimore radio producer host of WYPR’s “The Signal” 88.1 fm about my experiences living out these chapters month to month. It was actually the first time I really spoke to someone publicly about about my personal experiences and feelings about the overall process.
I really enjoyed my time in the studio with Aaron and feel flattered and privileged that there is such interest in the idea itself. The thing that excited me most about the whole process though, was the fact that Aaron went out of his way to interview many of the amazing “Living Chapters” players who have made this project not only possible but also very meaningful. One of my main goals in creating this project was to bring together and highlight the incredible people in my life that I care about. I thank Aaron for interviewing some of them and giving them a candid chance to share their thoughts and ideas about the process thus far.
On a side note, I am very glad the interview wasn’t scheduled on a “Day of Silence”. Strangely enough, the last time I was on “The Signal” was back in 2010 when I was invited to talk about a project I was working on called “Speaking of Silence”. I have been referring back to and thinking a lot of the work I did then a lot throughout this month.
Listen here for that interview.
If you are in the listening area this week, take a moment and tune in to WYPR 88.1 on Friday September 27th at 7pm or Saturday September 28th at 3pm. Otherwise check in on the podcast here. Thanks for listening.
