Love Dec 31 2012

Sunset over San Francisco

Today I am practicing being a loving person, which right now, means putting my own expectations for the day and evening aside to care for someone else.  It’s sort of tricky to deliberately have to confront my own selfish wishes and realize that the choice I need to make is who I get to be, and I’m glad that my choice today was to be a good person for someone else.  It feels good, and I am content with having made this choice.

In 2013 I hope to be more valuable to more people, to be more loving, kind, thoughtful.  To be a better listener.  To accomplish great things.  To have wonderful adventures.  To give myself permission to dream bigger, ask the hardest questions I can, and be as honest with myself and others as I can be.  It’s a great time to be alive, and I am blessed to be where I am.   My path is my own, and I’m excited to discover what lies around the next curve.  I am very happy to be here, now.

I challenge you to challenge yourself with doing something that is really hard and worth doing.  What that is is up to you — you know what it is you need to do.  Don’t let old excuses, thoughts or suggestions keep you from getting to where you need to go.  I’m going to do my best to do the same.

Did you have a good 2012?  Are you going to have a good 2013?  Please let’s do.

Mac OS X voices for using with the ‘say’ command Aug 19 2008

A neat trick if you have a Mac OS X machine is to do this (make sure your speakers are turned on):

  1. Open Terminal.app
  2. Type in at the command line: say hello world

This will make your computer say “hello world” in the default voice (Victoria).

Here is a list of the other voices you can also use:

Female Voices

  • $ say -v Agnes "hello world"
  • $ say -v Kathy "hello world"
  • $ say -v Princess "hello world"
  • $ say -v Vicki "hello world"
  • $ say -v Victoria "hello world"

Male Voices

  • $ say -v Bruce "hello world"
  • $ say -v Fred "hello world"
  • $ say -v Junior "hello world"
  • $ say -v Ralph "hello world"

Novelty Voices

  • $ say -v Albert "hello world"
  • $ say -v "Bad News" "hello world"
  • $ say -v Bahh "hello world"
  • $ say -v Bells "hello world"
  • $ say -v Boing "hello world"
  • $ say -v Bubbles "hello world"
  • $ say -v Cellos "hello world"
  • $ say -v Deranged "hello world"
  • $ say -v "Good News" "hello world"
  • $ say -v Hysterical "hello world"
  • $ say -v "Pipe Organ" "hello world"
  • $ say -v Trinoids "hello world"
  • $ say -v Whisper "hello world"
  • $ say -v Zarvox "hello world"

Have fun. You can now add voices to your monitoring applications, or freak people out if they don’t know about this cool trick.

To learn about all of the functionality of the say program, type in man say in Terminal to learn more, or click here to view the online man page for say.
