Do You Hear What I Hear? by J J Dare

We all want someone to listen to us when we have something to say. No matter if the subject matter is banal, benign, or boorish, there is a foot-stomping part of us that wants to be heard and acknowledged.

In addition to the auditory audience, cyberspace allows us to reach unlimited listeners. Social networking sites and blogs are our pulpits. The internet is a mega megaphone.

Writers want to be heard, too. What we write is a reflection of ourselves and we share that on a different listening sphere. You may forget my spoken word, but my written word lives forever.

Buy a book and hear what an author has to say.

Support Independent Publishers.

Occupy your local Independent Bookstore.

In honor of listening instead of pontificating, I’m going to shut up now and entertain you with some random pictures (each has its own unique story, but that’s for another day):

  1. What an appropriate thing for us to do during this season of Christmas – slow down and listen; stop and look, see what you can see!

  2. What you are conveying is right on point! It is important not to sit on the sidelines; we must take action and show support for one another.

    Thanks for sharing…

  4. I love this: “Writers want to be heard, too. What we write is a reflection of ourselves and we share that on a different listening sphere. You may forget my spoken word, but my written word lives forever.
