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

I have two successes to share today. One is that I am going to be the featured member for the month of December on the National Association of Memoir Writers website. Linda Joy Meyers, founder of the organization, will interview me this coming Thursday and a written and audio version of the interview will appear on the site.
The second success is an upcoming interview with Mark David Gerson, author of "The Voice of the Muse." He hosts a radio show called "The Muse and You," and I will a guest on December 17.
I am also giving my first talk, based on issues dealt with in my memoir, this coming Saturday at Blue Eagle Bookshop. Excitement is overshadowing nerves at the moment. Right after the talk, I am performing with my trio at Las Colinas Retirement Community.
There, I've bragged. Now it's your turn. Tell us about your successes, big and small.
