Further Support 1
Ok, the underwhelming response to my posting Howl We Do It suggests that I offer some further guidance on the fine art of howling. No time to waste getting started with the Full Moon Sisters (FMS) Movement.
Some of you…well, for A LOT of you, might find even the thought of full-throated howling terrifying. A normal response for sure. It’s hella scary. All the more reason to do it.
STEP 1: Wrap your mind around the possibilities of making animal sounds. It’s like learning to sing with a mission. The pain you feel/felt from harassment, mansplaining, and other abuses in your life – recent or past – will motivate.
STEP 2: Start practicing. Mark Day one on your calendar.
STEP3: Work into it.
· Start with a whimper in the bathroom when no one’s around
· Move up to a whimper in the bathroom when you know people are around
This is the first milestone. You need to clue in your housemate(s). You are doing this as part of a new movement to protest the shit women put up with, to vent the pain and to make a group statement about the changes coming.
OK then! Give it a go for a week to ten days.
Practice Once Every Day. 10 seconds minimum.
Oh, and get a girlfriend to practice with you. Men can join in solidarity.
We’ll work our way into the public auditory space together. Of course, we’re drawing from the wolves delicious inventory of sounds. Please share with friends!
