I have had the highest honor, once again, to read aloud another piece of Neil’s…this from his Caffeine Chronicles. I am a caffeine/coffee addict and an addict of his words! Thank you Neil…for yet another divine collaboration! 😀

  1. Between you and Neil, you have done a fantastic job. I love the way you recite the poem, it captures the attention of the listener and draws them in, making them feel that they are there, living the moment. And yes, I am a coffee addict as well 😆 . Time for another one I think. Both of your collaborations have been fantastic.

    Have you ever thought of reading any of your own pieces? As I said on Neil’s post, you have a great voice.
