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

Sorry folks - no blog posts for next few days

I came home from vacation out of sorts and off balance. I'll be taking the next few days to get myself back on track. Hope to see you all Monday.

Take care, relax, and hope you're feeling better soon.

Welcome home. I just returned from two weeks in Alaska and also feel off-balance, physically and mentally. Adventure travel is anything but restful! Let's both go sit on a rock for awhile.

Hope you'll rest and recharge and relax, Karen!

Hi Karen -- in response to your comment on my blog, sure. I'll be back on the job (and back home) on Tuesday, so I'll e-mail you more information then.

Karen, go see a doctor stat. What you described in your last blog sounded like a heart attack.

Karen Walker said...

No, Simona, it wasn't a heart attack. Saw doc yesterday and had EKG - but he is having me do a stress test and ecko-cardiogram just to make sure heart is fine. I know it is. Thanks for the concern.
And thanks everyone else for the well wishes. Taking this break is helping a lot.

Hope you're doing something relaxing and/or fun, whether that's singing (how about making a video so we can all see), walking, cooking, or reading...or whatever. Have fun.

Get some rest and take your time. Sometimes we need a little unplugging from life to get back on track.
