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

Monday Musings - Salt Lake City and Grand Tetons
Woke up early Memorial Day and took off to spend the day in Grand Teton National Park. At our first stop two moose wondered about the parking lot, moseying up to folks. Not long after that, we spotted a coyote hunting for prey. Here's a photo of it catching the unfortunate critter.
Next we saw a yellow-bellied Marmot hanging on a pole. We hiked in Cascade Canyon and saw Hidden Falls. After a lovely picnic lunch by String Lake, we spotted pronged horned antelope, a herd of elk, and a mama bear and her two cubs. The lineup of people with cameras watching the bears was almost funnier than the bears themselves.
