I always feel like my voice, when recorded, sounds like another person. I know people always say that, but it never ceases to freak me out. I think that's even more true when you know the voice is coming from a very different psychological space. The voice feels even more disembodied and otherworldly--and yet I know it is supposed to be a direct record, even less mediated than journal entries and such. I have very few recordings of myself, though, partly for this reason. Probably for the best. I have other thoughts but I'm at work so for now I'll just say I'm thinking of you.

Precisely. I have so many recordings of myself interviewing people from 1999 onward. I also have -- and need to track down -- a recording of a ninth-grade history class with my favorite K-12 teacher in which I say something. That is a trip.

(And I'm thinking of you, too!)
