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: ebooks
There was nothing I wanted to watch on TV. And although I have hundreds of books in my house, nothing appealed to me. I pulled out my Kindle, which I forget I have most of the time, and sigh, there was nothing on it that I wanted to read either.
But then I remembered I could go on the Kindle store and get a book. As soon as I clicked on Wi-fi and went to the store, there were recommendations for me by some of my favorite authors. I instantly chose one and within 10 seconds, I had a book to read and instantly got lost in it.
I'm telling you, talk about instant gratification. Now, I love bookstores and always will, but when you don't feel like getting up, getting dressed and driving somewhere, there's nothing like an ebook.
How about you?
