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: celebrating life
This weekend I practiced with my singing trio. This month we have several pretty big gigs. Tonight we're singing at a retirement community for about 70 people. On the 17th we're singing at the State Fair. We'll be singing at an annual meeting of retired nurses on the 20th. Plus several smaller venues in between. Aren't I lucky?
We also spent time with friends at an annual Labor Day pool party. There is nothing richer than hanging out with good friends, talking, laughing, swimming, eating, drinking. Aren't I lucky?
Tell me how you celebrate life and the ways in which you are lucky.
