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: Yikes I'm turning 65 in 2 days
Secondly, I saw a video on, I think it was the Ellen DeGeneres show, of an ob/gyn doc who got breast cancer. When it was time for her surgery, she gathered the surgical team together and asked them all to dance in the operating room before doing the procedure. When Ellen asked why she did that, she said, "Because when you are facing death, it is time to celebrate life."
My new mantra, folks. Because we are all facing death. We just don't know exactly when that is going to happen.
