Recording From Scratch

"On the seventh day, I finished. There are few words to adequately express the feelings that come with reading your own book – page by page, chapter by chapter, story by story – from beginning to end. I laughed, I cried, I cringed, I reflected, I gave thanks. I spoke three languages and realized how many prepositions I dropped. HA!

But mostly, I thanked the universe for this moment. When I came to the end, I felt deep gratitude. For all of it – the living, the writing, the sharing.

....I’ll never forget the quiet, intimate seven days I got to spend alone in a sound booth telling my story."
—Tembi Locke, Author of From Scratch
