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 - Happy Chanukah

Just thought I'd throw Happy Chanukah wishes out there for all my Jewish friends. I love the lights of both Chanukah and Christmas because they both symbolize bringing in the light to the darkness of winter.

The lights in winter really are beautiful. Have a wonderful holiday, Karen.

Bringing light to darkness is what it's all about.

Joanne said...

I join you in extending good wishes, wishing all much light and peace.

My cousin-in-law is Jewish, so they are raising the kids to know and respect both sets of holidays.
