Please may I be assigned Section 12 - Old Age?
This is a topic with which I am intimately familiar.

Section 2 is PL OK, and quite interesting even though not racy. Thank you.
I didn't know Epicurus came up with "Happiness is the only good". I thought it was Ingersoll! At least the Colonel completed it this way:

"Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so."
I think both Ingersoll and Epicurus (he was ahead of time, y'know :D ) copied off the paper of John Stuart Mill.

Amy, if I BC a project but don't read any of the sections, will that project come up in a search with my name? That doesn't happen with the MC, DPL or Cover maker.

Hi Michele,
Only things that you read come up when you search the catalog. But if you want to see what you have done, in the Librivox Management Dashboard you look under the Project drop down My Projects and it will show which ones you BCd or read for. I'm not sure if there is some other option.

I searched for you in the Librivox Collection the Internet Archive and it came up with more things than the catalog does so it may be pulling up things you BCed without reading for.
266 projects in the archive, and 216 projects in the catalog.

Section 9, Religion is PL OK. Love the statement that Whitman "does not believe that Nature has given her last message to man. He does not believe that all has been ascertained. He denies that any sect has written down the entire truth." I've felt that way all my life, and come to abjure the know-it-all.

Well that's a shame, for organizing and Bc'ing, and MC'ing, and DPL'ing, often takes longer and more effort than reading a file or two. I guess one has to read to be counted. :shock:

Uploaded Section 12 Old Age

https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/ingersollv3whitman_12_ingersoll_128kb.mp3 11:45

This was a challenge for me due to the substantial amount of Whitman quotations.
I've often felt that his poetry really isn't poetry, but should be called "elevated prose".
So, yesterday evening I said to myself: "Self, are there some recordings of Whitman reciting his own poetry?" And by gosh and by golly there are! Sadly they're taken from Edison wax cylinders, so there is terrible, oppressive background noise. Here's one of the better ones:

(One of my very first LV recordings was a Whitman poem, so don't call me a Whitman Hater.)

PL Notes Section 12
I would add quotes in these spots as without the text before me I couldn't tell when Ingersoll is quoting Whitman or speaking himself. They both elocute so similarly.
1:35 Quote
2:53 End Quote
3:28 Quote
4:00 End Quote
4:45 Quote
5:50 End Quote

Whitman's recording is interesting. Thanks for sharing. He speaks so slowly, weighing each word, hoping its import sinks in fully. Here's a video I found: 3 visual interpretations of Whitman's "A Noiseless Patient Spider" along with three readings. That was interesting too. This was an LV Poetry Weekly back in 2005. It's probably time for that one to be done again.
