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

Telling the Truth Tuesday - Folk dance camp
I have folkdanced off and on since I'm 16 and it is definitely one of my passions, although bodily injuries like arthroscopic knee surgery, a fractured ankle, and rotator cuff surgery on my shoulder have certainly hampered it in the last few years. But if those things hadn't happened, I wouldn't have found my passion for singing, so go figure. Hopefully, my soul has learned to get life lessons without illness or injury.
At camp, we stay in dormitories at New Mexico State University in Socorro, NM. We eat in the cafeteria, dance all day and party at night. Then, when the dancing is done, the guitars come out and the singing begins. Exhilirating, intense, exhausting, and a total blast - that's August Camp.
So, I won't be visiting your blogs on Friday cause I'll be, well, all of the above...so, see ya next week, y'all.
