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 - Planning for a trip
As I make all the necessary arrangements, house sitter, newspaper, mail, making sure we have all our medications, making sure our family has our itinerary, yada yada, I realize that I am so very privileged to be able to do this. I'm trying not to feel guilty, because I know other people are struggling so financially. Like so many other things in life, planning for a trip is both exciting and scary. Don't those two emotions almost always go hand in hand. It's learning to balance them both that is challenging.
When we go, I am not going to commit to finding computers wherever we go, so I will be on a lengthy blogcation. That is scary, because I've worked hard to build a following here. But life must go on and I must live my life as best I can as it works for me. And when I go to Greece and Turkey, I really want to BE in Greece and Turkey, and not in bloggydom.
How about you?
