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

Saturday I had a singing gig with my trio. We did very well and the audience seemed to really enjoy us. The sad news is that one of us is leaving in the Spring for a lengthy motor home adventure with her hubby. When I asked the third member of our trio if she wanted to continue to sing together, she hesitated. She's not sure. If she does decide to continue, we have to find a third partner. If she doesn't want to continue, I am faced with giving up singing, or finding two other people and basically starting over. Not sure I have the energy for that...so I'm quite sad. We'll see how this shakes out.
At folkdancing Saturday night, I connected with good friends, which felt wonderful. I haven't been dancing much this past year because of my shoulder injury/surgery/recovery. Now I can dance once again and it fed my soul.
Several friends expressed an interest in coming to my talk on intuition December 5. It still amazes me when people seem to want to hear what I have to say. I am quite nervous about the talk, because it is new. I've talked many times as a marketing/public relations professional. And I'm comfortable talking about my life and experiences. But this is different.
Do you have any new experiences looming on your horizon that make you nervous? If so, how are you handling it?
