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

Guest Blogger coming soon

In case you don't remember, I'm going on vacation 9/26 through 10/10. I am planning to blog from Scotland and Ireland, but not sure how often - it will depend on internet connections.
Gene Bodzin, a memoir writer extraordinare, was following my "Letting Go" series and an essay spewed forth. He said he has no control over what comes out of his mind. I agreed to post it, with the caveat that readers understand that I don't necessarily agree with everything Gene says, but I will say he states his opinions beautifully. It is a thoughtful essay on stories and truth.
It will appear here on 9/27, a day I will be completely and utterly jet-lagged.

Blessings,
Karen
