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

Day One - Scotland
There is a Writer's Museum, which we'll check out tomorrow, a Witchery, a network of underground streets and alleyways from when Edinburgh was devasted by the Plague, and Prince Street, the shopping district. Today we ate lunch at Deacon Brovie's Tavern. Deacon Brovie was said to be the figure who inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to write "Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde.
I wanted to thank Gene for his thoughtful guest post yesterday. Hope you had a chance to take a look at it.
Blessings from Scotland,
