First, thank you to everyone who took the time to read and comment on my last post! I really appreciate it.

Reflecting on the comments that were left about my voice in the piece from my last post, it really becomes clear for me that voice is the message. I have taken a relatively ordinary experience, and through use of my voice, my style, and who I am, the experience can come through the written word and come to life for someone else, allowing them to experience what I am feeling. Without an effective voice, those details would be pointless and difficult to read. Voice gives them life, and hence voice is the message because without it the details would be meaningless.
