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

Talking Writing has launched a new literary magazine and is looking for submissions of new work (there are guidelines on the site). They will also start reviewing various literary and journalistic blogs in the magazine and would be very happy to hear from writers about their blogs--or suggestions from other writers about good blogs. Last but not least, they are looking for writers to do short opinion pieces for a column about mystery writing ("Talking Mystery").Here's the link: http://talkingwriting.com/
I am in a sink hole in terms of my writing. So much of my time and energy is devoted to family members and friends who have health issues that I haven't written a word (except these blog posts) in weeks. I am trusting that this is okay for now, since there seems to be no choice in the matter, although I know we always have choices in any given moment. But there is just so much energy one person has, and between the crises and my Sugartime commitments, and taking care of house and hubs, there's nothing left over. So, I am making sure I eat write, get back to exercising regularly, and trying to get a good a night's sleep as possible. And continually turn everyone over to Spirit. I'm not in charge, thank goodness.
What are you musing about today?
