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: on vacation

I'll be taking a short vacation from blogging -  after Wednesday's Insecure Writer's Support Group. We're off to Washington DC and Baltimore for a family visit and some sightseeing. Despite growing up in NYC, I have never spent time in our nation's capital and I'm looking forward to seeing the memorials, The Smithsonian, etc. Catch up with all of you when we return. Until then, be well and many blessings to everyone.

Have a wonderful time. I've always wanted to visit D.C. and see the Smithsonian.

And I just got back from a trip myself. I'll have a few pics on the blog tomorrow. :)

That sounds like a grand vacation. I've never spent any time there, either. Enjoy the trip and find out what is really going on with all the scandals.
