Welcome to Following the Whispers blog

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.

“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf

“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Weekend delights

I'm jazzed. Today my choir sings at a retirement community. Tonight my singing ensemble has a rehearsal for a gig tomorrow. Saturday night is folkdance night. Now that my arm is out of its sling, perhaps I can try dancing again. Sunday we're getting together with friends to play mah jongg (an ancient chinese game played with colorful tiles that for some reason was co-opted by Jewish women in the 1920s). Brains are challenged, conversation is possible, and lots of laughs ensue. How can one not feel blessed with a life such as this? Happy weekend everyone.

I'm still trying to find the coffee pot, much less the energy. Can I have some of what you're drinking, please??

Best Regards, Galen.
