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

New search engine for writers
This week I finally added new words to my WIP. Yippee!! No daily word goals for this gal, I'm happy if it's just a paragraph here and there these days. I've also gone back to the nonfiction piece I began last year.
I realized that retired folks do community service work, work on their hobbies, and socialize. Well, Sugartime is my community service work, writing is my hobby, and the rest of my life is the socialization part. So I guess I'm right on track, exactly where I'm supposed to be.
It's the not feeling productive piece I still haven't gotten a handle on. Not having every second of every minute of every day filled with things to do. I'm learning to just "be" and it feels so very weird. Nice, but weird. And it's always such a nice bonus when I receive a gift of wisdom from something I'm drawn to watch or read.
So, do check out Elizabeth's new search engine. And keep on keepin' on. I'm singing today at a retirement community so I'l check in with y'all a bit later, okay?
