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

Happy trails to you...

Does anyone remember the song Roy Rogers and Dale Evans sang at the end of their show. I'm going back to the 1950's folks, so many of you are too young. But it went:
Happy trails to you, until we meet again
Happy trails to you, keep smiling on till then
Happy trails to you, till we meet again.

Seems fitting, since we're leaving on our trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone. I have scheduled random thought posts while we're away, but I won't be visiting other blogs for the next 10 days or so. I will miss you guys, but please don't forget me. I'll be back blogging on 6/7.

I used to watch Roy Rogers all the time-- was it Saturday mornings it used to come on? I always liked, but could never understand, the guy who drove the jeep. I guess I didn't understand how a jeep could be in cowboy days and did't think that cowboys could exist in modern days.

Have a great trip! That's some beautiful country.
