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

Random Thoughts - Buddy update

I wasn't planning to write any blog posts while on vacation, but just had to share this news. We spoke to Buddy's vet yesterday and it turns out Buddy's thyroid levels are quite a bit below normal, which could very well be the reason he's been insulin resistant. Our housesitter will fetch the thyroid meds and hopefully, by the time we return home, he'll be feeling much better. Thought you all should know.

In the meantime, we'll be leaving the Tetons Wednesday and heading for Yellowstone.
What happens when you tune out, rid yourself of distractions, take yourself out into nature? My whole body relaxes into the Earth. Breath flows deeper,without any blockages. Inner vision grows and out vision crystallizes. Communication comes easier. What about you?
