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: Having fun!
My Sugartime rehearsals are once again fun, now that we are a duo. Our focus is on having a good time, not worrying about whether we're singing the right notes. That doesn't mean we don't work on getting the notes right, but it's not the focus. That's the difference. So I'm having fun singing, doing my work out routine, which is basically dancing around my living room for a half hour, hanging with hubby and friends. The writing isn't so fun these days. I'm having to go thru my manuscript line by line, trying to show, not tell. Oy! Doesn't come naturally to me. But it's joyous when I do find a way to say the line in a way that shows.
So, are you having fun today? If so, how?
