If I’m excited my voice may grow loud and I have a habit of emphasizing a point by waving my arms about. Mind you, my voice is not normally loud – well not that loud. My mother always said that a visit from me felt like a cyclone had blown through. A conservative lady, she meant it in a nice way. Moments of her life were enlivened by living vicariously through me.
