Review of Letter to My Mom: You Haven't Lost Me

A way with words....AND sound. This piece creates a strong visual both through the narrative as well as the fantastic natural sounds in the back. The memories that are told are the kinds that listeners can easily relate to, hence easily taken back to our own childhood. Yet, her descriptions are so specific that the ownership is still her own.

It also leaves you in limbo a little...why doesn't the mother and daughter spend time or talk anymore? I think it is great that she never lets us know why. It allows our own imagination to fill in the blanks.

The pacing was perfect and the sound intervals were done very well. I think every mother that hears this will be touched.

If I had to change something, I may shave off the last 2 or 3 seconds of nat sound at the end. but that is all.

Very nice.
