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

Telling the Truth Tuesday - plugging in
Although it's been five years since my Dad passed, the same thing happens, although much less frequently. Grief is like that. It comes in waves. In the beginning, it is like a storm at sea--fast and furious. Then it subsides somewhat.
What I'm finding as we wait and watch and love her, is that I need to find ways to plug back in to my life any way I can. Friday I did an exercise video. Saturday I practiced singing and wrote a few blog posts. It felt so good.
Till next time,
