That was good, I enjoyed reading thst.

You coach people on public speaking, huh? What advice would you give to me on how to speak on a Youtube video? I keep wanting to sit and make a little discussion video for youtube (that may even prompt discussion here on PT's), but everytime i switch on my video or my webcam | seize up - I just can't open my mouth. Any help would be good!
L' chaim!

Thank you, Terry. As for the public speaking, first thing I need to ask you, is "What do you think, makes you freeze?"

Are you afraid of sounding foolish, for example? Are you afraid all the time when you need to speak in those situations? (In front of groups etc). You need to figure out what your fears first and why then go from there.

Fear of of embarrassing myself maybe, oh and definately my voice - hate my voice. It's not paranoia. My mom once recorded my voice and played it back to me (for fun) and I hated it. I never realised how irritating I sound. And everyone says I squeak. And when I talk, people ALWAYS tell me they don't want to hear my whining voice, so I've learned to keep quiet. Maybe, i worry no-one will be interested in my vid's when they hear my voice. Or maybe people won't find my stuff interesting?

All common fears, Terry. There's nothing unusual about what you are telling me.
I am on Skype if you want to chat further.

After I wrote the piece on Jews, I thought, good golly Miss Molly, I sound like Malcolm X, in some ways on this.
