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

Slogging Through the Day
Why does this happen? Usually there is nothing you can do at 2 am to resolve any of the things you are obsessing about. Like how am I going to fit 30+ people in my living room and still have space enough for the five singers in Sugartime to perform. And how are we going to resolve the issue of gig dates and having to make changes when one of us has to travel or has a family obligation. And where should hubby and I live when he retires? And why oh why are no words coming out of me and onto the page in any of my works in progress. And why did Buddy (our dog) get diabetes and is he going to be okay?
I think you get the idea. So I am slogging through Thursday, working on letting go of my attachment to the outcome of any of these dilemmas (see yesterday's post on Taking the Action and Letting Go of the Result).
Being tired does not lend itself to creativity. Or exercising. Or much else. So I'm taking myself to visit a sick friend. She's in her 80s and has a clot in her leg which they are trying to dissolve. And severe edema, so she can't walk. I'm supposed to cheer her up. I know I'll be able to summon the energy for that at least.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
