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

Along the way, we celebrate others' milestones as well. Weddings, birthdays, and funerals. This week I will attend a friend's wedding, both in their 60s. And my 97-year-old aunt tells me her days are numbered. I tell her all our days are numbered. We just don't know how many numbers we have left. She laughed.
So today, I want to acknowledge milestones in our lives. My next one, I hope, will be a completed first draft of my first novel.
