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

Home Again

Travel is wonderful, but it is oh so nice to come home to your own bed. 13.5 hours flight time and 4.5 hours waiting for flights, but we got here safe and sound. We made ourselves stay up till 9 pm our time and slept for 8 hours straight. Our doggie was very happy to see us.

Thanks to those of you who continued to check in here while I was away and not blogging regularly. I will spend the next few days recovering my energy, catching up on your blogs, and beginning to write my own again.

Blessings to you all,

Glad to have you back. I missed ya! Flying sucks. that is the only thing wrong with travel. LOL someone needs a travel machine. Like a lift. Step in. Press the button to desired destination. Bing. Door opens. And there you are. Niiiice!

Part of the beauty of travel is the pure insight that comes with it, seeing all that history and how other cultures live. Welcome home, I hope you had an amazing journey.

Welcome home! Your trip sounded wonderful - can't wait to see pictures and hear more about it. I bet you're exhausted, get some rest, post when you are re-energized :)

Welcome home, Karen. Overseas travel is painful, painful. So, you deserve a couple of days filled with as much sleep as you can get. Really admire you, staying up til nine, to get back on track...that's tough to do.

Best Regards, Galen
