As one gets older, one’s voice mellows down. One could no longer attain that pitch one used to be able to achieve and the voice crackles- intermittently just as it whimpers- intermittently. Occasionally one will find oneself tongue twisting through certain words one never had difficulty pronouncing before. And occasionally needing to catch ones breath to stress sentences out from ones chest. One may be well built but as one ages, there certainly are other elements that creeps in that are beyond our control, or repair.
