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

Monday Musings: girl trip adventure

This is a short week for me. On Thursday, two sisters-in-law arrive and we take off to Ojo Caliente, a natural mineral and hot springs resort and spa in Northern New Mexico. It's one of my favorite places on the planet. There we will soak and get massages, then on Friday, drive to Denver to meet a new member of our family. She's seven months old, but I haven't met her yet. Can't wait.
Sooo, won't be blogging on Friday this week.

The weekend was lovely. So nice to have hubby back home. We caught up with each other, watched some flicks, went folkdancing Saturday night, and talked through vacation options for the year.

My life is pretty uninteresting right now. No major crises, a few body issues here and there, but nothing major. I don't have much to blog about. Soo, given that, I think I'll skip Telling the Truth Tuesday as well as Friday and just take a much-needed break.

Catch up with all of you next Monday.

Oh Kudos to you. I want both a massage and a break. Your life is fine, simplicity is not boring just simple :)

Your trip sounds heavenly. Enjoy. We’re taking off tomorrow to meet friends in Key West, it’ll be fun but not as relaxing.

I remember going to Ojo Caliente when I was a kid. Seems like it was sulphury smelling. Enjoy your break and come back refreshed.
