Some mornings I wake up to Jon watching a video on his phone. Other times it’s the news or a new Netflix show. This morning I woke up to Jon listening to his and my voice on our Podcast Katz and Wulf On Bedlam Farm.
“We’re up on iTunes”, Jon said, as I struggled to open my eyes, he had been up since 3am.
I watched as Jon pulled up our podcast on the app on his iPhone. We kept waiting to get an email from Apple saying our podcast was approved, then Jon decided to just check on the app, and there it was.
We listened to the whole thing as we lay in bed. “Oh I’m sorry”, I said, “I kept cutting you off. It’s just that I was excited.” Jon just shrugged as if he was used to it. “I know how to get my say in,” he said.
Not everyone appreciates when I get excited over the little things like Jon does. He sees it as an infectious passion for life (bless him).
Honestly, I was a little embarrassed listening back to the podcast. I still expect to be told to “calm down” when I’m spouting so enthusiastically. That’s how my excitement was so often met in the past.
We just need to be ourselves Jon keeps saying about the podcast. But then, he likes me the way I am.
So the podcast has just become another way for me to accept myself. This is who I am . I get excited reading about octopuses or watching beetles mating on a rotting deer hoof in the woods. (I saw that on yesterday’s walk in the woods).
I learned to say to myself “That’s what I look like” when I see all the pictures Jon posts of me on his blog.
So… this is who I am, that’s what I look like and now, this is what I sound like. At 55 years old, I get the opportunity to know and love something new about myself.
