I just wanted to make a quick note re: Alice.

I have been having a difficult time figuring out how to mike the reading sessions of Alice.

I tried a mono headset mike last night.

Worked really good, but ---

I was using two $800 mikes in order to create a stereo field, which I find much more useful.

But had to sit so close to the mikes that I could not easily read the pages of the book.

So, now I am about to try another configuration which I think will work good.

I am using two high quality mikes with sound booms reaching over to my chair.

Still have problem of having to keep lips right up against wind screen most of the time.

At any rate, the second test reading was utterly delightful, if I may say so myself.

I really love this book and understand it far better than most, being a longtime student and practitioner of rhetoric and logic (and logical fallacies), which is what, unknown to most, it is really all about.

It comes through strong when I read it.

Am looking forward to continuing.

I had considered abandoning this project due to other considerations, but after hearing this first chapter last night, my blood is running hot again.

She is just such a dear little girl.

And her little cat too!

enough of that, for now.

10:45 a.m.

Well, my torture session lies several miles away in 15 minutes = I guess I had better go down the rabbit hole just as fast as I am able and just make myself disappear into the flame which is left after the flame goes out.

Don't know what that is.

Then get ready to listen to the first chapter when I post it, hopefully very soon.
