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 Wrap-up

Hi everyone,
Just got home from the family reunion in Wimberley, Texas. It was wonderful and I will write about it tomorrow. Right now I am exhausted and need to unpack and get some laundry going to get ready for folkdance camp.

Just quick note. Matilda Butler and Kendra Bonnett interviewed me on Wednesday and will post the interview on their womensmemoirs website Monday, 7/27. It was great fun talking with them about the process I went through to write and publish "Following the Whispers." Hope you'll take a moment to check it out. More later,

Blessings,
Karen

Interviews are fun, once you get over the initial jitters. Glad you had a fun vacation.
