Astrid may be virtually voiceless in the way we think of voice to express itself, but she is highly attuned to sound vibrations and the smallest of energetic nuances that are composed in every second around us. She does, however, know how to grunt and thump quite well, which to me is musical and lyrical in its own respect. As silent as she may seem compared to other animal companions like dogs, cats, and birds, she actually teaches me the most about sound and voice – that vibration and frequency are at the heart of the matter – and that song is still present even in stillness.
There is resonance that radiates from our innermost nature, or essence, and while she may not make sound in the way we define this, she in fact not only is, but prompts me more deeply to listen and compose from my cosmic core.
