    That was a delight, and I "heard" it in his voice. Thanks, poetinahat.

    ETA: The book is already out, I think.

    Thanks, Anna - I think I shall make an effort to buy a copy.

    It does sound like him, doesn't it? It made me feel a bit silly about how long I've tried to find my voice, when Cash just sounds like Cash, and that's all there is to it.

    I don't think it's silly. Translating our voices, in which we think and speak, to written language engages a separate, shuffling part of the brain. It's like trying to tie shoes wearing mittens. There there's this whole other area of our brains used for music. I'd bet money that catching music catches voice. Cash did that.

    I would say Cash didn't want a movie made about him.

    Thanks for sharing this, Rob. I hope he is ok about having his poems printed. That hex for making a movie sounds serious.
