Yesterday I went to the Walthall County Library in Tylertown, MS. I spoke for about 30 minutes on my life has an author and person with Parkinson's disease. I read some from Face It. Three very good parts of this day included: my voice kept on working and my vocal folds did not spasm, a very kind man from the audience came up to me. He said he had been a speech teacher. If a speaker is anxious about their voice, nearly always relaxes after a few minutes and the listeners (who I must remember are nearly always rooting for the speaker) understand their manner of speaking better and better as the talk goes on. The third very good part was I got to know Mr. Thornhill better during the car ride there and back. Besides keeping a tree farm in Walthall County; Mr. Thornhill works all the time. He drove to Clinton, took me to Tylertown, brought me back home to Clinton, and without coming in, headed back down the road to Tylertown. If that is not enough, this is a gentleman who decided to Hike the Appalachian Trail, by sections when he was 66 years old, more than ten years ago! Let me tell you, I am impressed like crazy. I think that my new person to model myself after is Mr. John Thornhill. Thank you Mr. Thornhill.
