Today I was listening to the Jimi Hendrix Woodstock performance. The last track is a guy telling people thanks, asking them to clean up etc. After he stops talking there’s about 15 seconds of background noise. People are cleaning up, talking etc.
A guy says something like “Hey, don’t go there…” and I can’t make out the rest.
That guy was standing in a field in New York 43 years ago and said something to someone near him. Now here I am in Grand Rapids MI 43 years later hearing him say it. I’ll bet he would NEVER have though such a thing could be possible. The fact that it DID happen amazes me.
I’m also struck by how often I’ll be talking to someone far away, and in the background hear someone talking. Their voice carried hundreds, sometimes thousands of miles to be heard where I am, and they have no idea.
How far does your voice carry? Ever think about the fact that sometimes the things you say might be heard hundreds or thousands of miles away?
