What there is in vocal chords?
A voice can sooth one. It can rattle one to the core.
For me your voice does both: it rattles me with hope.
And yet it sooths me with the pointlessness of the almost forgotten aspiration to find within you my own truth.
What there is in vocal chord. A physical feature like a face. An aesthetic thing and not the unparallel of the mind. What there is in vocal chord. It is but a feature of beauty or not. It is beautiful your vocal chords imbue it with the deepest of light. But what there is in vocal chord? The physical beauty that creates a sound. Inherent not telling of a truth – what there is, is what always was… What there is in vocal chords is not access to the mind which controls and folds and unfolds… What there is in your vocal chords: is my comfort and my undoing. Your sound is but like your smell. The hope that resonates from your voice is as telling as your smile… What there is in vocal chords is not the essence of the soul but merely an exterior dancing of the within in hope that we might hear.
And yet I am restricted to listen upon your vocal chords’ inconsistent noise – for I cannot access the inner depths of your heart and mind. Your vocal chords are like the beauty in your eyes… Beautiful for all to hear. They are but sound but beauty imbued by God and nature… They are not the essence that once you promised to me.
I calmly listen to the sound of your voice – I do not seek to find your essence – I simply hear the wind upon your vocal chords. I cannot know what you do not seek to reveal to me of your inner essence.
Voice can sooth. Yours rattles me to the core. What is there in your vocal chords that can reveal to me any hope of any pleasant experiences except in memory – for you denied to me the essence of your life. And though I might seek some hidden word within your mouth: I seek more than simply an enigma hidden upon the disturbance of the winds which bind upon my space and upon my mind and within my essence and impregnates my soul into and in my time.
What is there in your vocal chords? If only I knew the soul that disrupts the air into the beauty of a melody: …
Who is Marc Evan Aupiais?Attorney; Writer; Enthusiast of Germanic, Celtic, & Romance languages, with a love of exploring law, speech, legal systems, linguistics, sociology, & int. news.
I have always been fascinated with the law. By chance, it happens to be my field. I am an admitted attorney of the High Court of South Africa, as of 28 January 2016.
It was my fellow students' suggestions, in the final years of school, that I might be suited to a career in law, along with long discussions with a friend of mine - which imbued me with a keen interest in the history, language, and laws of the Roman Empire - that made me realise that law was the choice of career that best suited the ideas and plans I had for the future. I enrolled in an LLB degree at Wits University and subsequently graduated Bachelor of Laws a few years later.
I completed, with distinction, the Law Society's Legal Education and Development (L.E.A.D) School for Legal Practice program. I am pleased to have had the privilege of having served at two very different firms during my articles, giving me a much broader experience of work in the profession.
I believe success requires not just hard work, but intelligence, perseverance, humility, integrity, ingenuity, diligence, a strong work ethic, and the courage to request the assistance of those better-versed in a matter, or field.
I am passionate about the place of my birth, South Africa and am proud to be a patriot and citizen of this diverse and beautiful nation. I consider myself a global citizen and keep connections in a number of different nations across the world. Communicating with people from other cultures, I believe, has aided me to have a more open-minded approach in so far as how I see and interact with the world.
The cultures and legal systems, morals, and courtesy systems, languages, intricacies and religions of South Africa and of the world, are subjects I love to research. I extensively enjoy reading and writing, and in keeping abreast with important events occurring in other countries, I find my knowledge of other languages, especially French, to be quite useful.
Law & Career
Law firms I have worked at include: DL Wilson Attorneys in Randburg North, Desmond Barry Attorneys in Morningside, Sandton, Botha & Sutherland Attorneys in Aukland Park, Johannesburg. I currently work as a Consulting Attorney for Serina Govender Inc. Attorneys-at-Law. My professional website will tell you more about me, where you might want to subscribe to my professional blog . I also edit and write for the SACNS, write breaking news for a multinational service called InfosNews Breaking News, and act as a correspondent for the popular french language Les News service.
