Taken by me from Newark Airport last year on my way to Chloe's workshop on Cortes Island BC.
Today (9-11-2017) I remember all those who have left this life, as I feel their loss and their pain.

I am reminded of my two eldest sisters- one departed, one still enjoying some of her life.  I remember a time in 1944,  as a little girl, being taken by my two sisters to "The Sampson and Hercules" Dance Hall in Norwich, England, for an afternoon Tea Dance.  I sat in the balcony and watched them jive to big bands, and occasionally they would get up and sing with the female singers. Songs like Accentuate the Positive, and Sisters ("Sisters, There Were Never Such Devoted Sisters").  Today for the first time,  I remembered the feeling of that little girl. Felt that feeling so vividly, and started singing those songs. Moving my body in ways I haven't experienced for a long time.

WHY???? WHY NOW?  I'm taking a workshop with Chloë Goodchild  (what a fabulous name)
based on her book The Naked Voice- Transforming your Life though The Power of Sound. This particular workshop is called "Liberate the Voice of Your Soul".  70 years of life has given me voice-manufactured through survival and adapting to life. Putting on a voice (Face) to fit into the world and my life.

I have done extremely well at telling other peoples stories- on the stage, and narrating their stories. Now it's time for me to tell mine.  I'm not sure how to begin. This is a beginning, I guess. And I have to go back maybe to the beginning of my life, even before I was conceived.

So my thoughts go with all of you who are worried about the Hurricane, The Fires, the Tragedies of your lives. Maybe together we can find the Still Small Voice of Joy, inside us.

Next Time.  Here is the cover of my latest narration audiobook, out soon.

Dear Friends- Oliver! was a huge success for the whole cast, and a wonderful return to the theater for me.

It also gave me a new insight into what I'm truly passionate about- ME! And the study of myself. WHO AM I?  when I'm not in the skin of another character. An endless search and one that always leads me to a question.  WHAT IS MY PASSION?

So, today's passion is a new book by Dean Moriarty called "THE POEM".  Don't be put off by the simple cover. Soon it will be available as a whisper  sync on Audible, with beautiful color photos inside, as you travel on this journey with me.  In the meantime, click on the links below for a little taste of what's to come.

Remember, I need critics to listen to my narrations.  If you love to listen, and expand your mind, email me lindamaeroper@gmail- and I will send you a free credit to download any one of my Narrations, for an honest review.

Prince Philip- Duke of Edinburgh

I narrated an audiobook, Prince Philip: The Queen's Devoted Companion, and you can find it over to the right in my complete display of titles, or--
click here


In 2009, Prince Philip became the longest-serving Consort in British history, as Queen Elizabeth became the longest-serving Monarch.

In 2011, at age 90, he announced he was winding down his official duties.

Now, at age 95, he is standing down (retiring).

He claimed in his usual humorous way, "Well, I can't stand up much longer." and is standing down (retiring) from his official duties.
