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

You asked for photos, so I'm going to let the attached pictures tell the story of our wonderful weekend in the Pecos Wildnerness. This is the beginning of Cave Creek Trail, one of the many spectacular trails available in this area.
This is a view from the hiking trail of just a small piece of the
heaven that is Pecos Wildnerss.
Made it to the caves. Happy that I am in good enough shape
to do so. Two years ago, I only made it as far as the waterfall.
Glimpses of nature along the trail. This is the waterfall before you get to the caves.
A bluebell - one of the many wildflowers in the mountains of Pecos.
My "Rocky" dance. Made the 5+ mile hike with no trouble whatsoever. I'm 60 and fit and fabulous!
