"I miss the weeks I can’t step inside that sound-proof booth, sink into a story, and record. It’s more than a habit. It’s therapy. Initially, volunteering as a narrator for the Talking Book Services was more about my being an author and making my own books available via another venue to readers, but once a year of volunteering turned into three, I realized I’d been sucked more into the giving aspect. It is no longer about me. And to be frank, the program is giving back to me more than I ever gave to it."
