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

http://alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com/ was kind enough to give me this award. It so suits where I am right now. I've been to several parties and don't feel like talking to anyone. I am beginning to inhabit the time period I am writing in and my characters. I used to read about fiction writers and wonder what it might be like for this to happen. It is a bit weird. Thank you, Alex, for thinking of me.
On another note, I will be traveling next week to deal with my family member who is having health issues, so I will be unplugged until Monday, October 18. Be well everyone and I'll catch up when I return.
