it means that everybody is truly uniquely different, when it comes down to it, but we spend our lives trying to sound right and look right; mostly by trying to sound and look like other people and getting lost in the echo and the imitation.
if you’re still enough, there’s a sound and expression that comes out of you that isn’t like anything that’s ever happened before or will ever happen again.
that’s your voice.
it’s who you actually *are*, instead of the person you think everyone is supposed to be seeing…the pretty one, the fat one, the perfect one, the one who’s “good at x”, the dutiful daughter, the long-suffering addict, the one in control, etc. none of those things are you, or your voice. your voice is what’s underneath that.
if that makes sense.
