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 - Honoring Alex
When I began blogging, I never imagined in a million years that I would actually make friends. People I've grown to care about and yes, love. I've only met a few in person. Most live in other places. It was such an unexpected outcome to something I chose to do to help promote my memoir.
One of the biggest blessings in the blogging world is Alex J. Cavanaugh. http://alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com
He began blogging right around the same time I did. He says it was because of the one book he had in him, CassaStar. Now, he's finished the third book in that trilogy, has 1700+ followers on his blog, is surely the best friend to bloggers there is, because he lets us all know in every post what's happening with everyone else.
And best of all. He is just a really nice guy who really loves his wife, is maintaining his privacy, to the sadness of all of us who would love to see what he looks like.
So, here's to Alex (raising a glass here) a man who most assuredly deserves the honors he is receiving today all over bloggydom.
