“There is much to be said for simply being oneself while not using it as an excuse not to get better. Somehow when I travel around and hear Appalachian spoken I feel like I’m among friends-to-be. I hope that is what they hear on their side to.”
—Ron Stephens 2018
When I’m in strange surroundings and happen to hear a voice that sounds like mine I immediately feel comforted. I might be visiting a store while on vacation and hear a voice an aisle over that sounds like home or in a strange hospital far from home. Just as Ron said those voices sound like if I’m not among friends I’m certainly around friends-to-be.
