Voice Recognition In Humans


Have you ever thought about how incredible it is that we can hear a voice anywhere; on the radio, on a phone message, out of a crowd, and we know who it is?  On the face of it, it doesn’t seem that incredible.  I mean, if you know someone from their being a friend of yours, or from loving their music, or listening to their shows, you might think, “Well yeah, you hear their voice and you 'know' who it is."

Without Expectations


There was a situation in my early adult life that flashes into my memory every once in a while.  And it shows something about me that I am proud of.  I’ll get to what I think it may be in just a bit.

The situation was that I was living with a beautiful brunette with cheesy dimples when a friend of hers came into town.  At that time, this friend, I’ll call her Kelly, still had the label of “best friend” to my lady.  They both came from the same mid-western state and shared a lot of their youth together.  I have no idea of what their relationship is now.  But my gal was very excited whenever Kelly used to come into town.
