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

June hiatus

I am taking the month of June off from blogging - traveling most of the month - to the Amalfi Coast of Italy for a few days, then on to an ethnographic folk dance tour of Transylvania with a bunch of friends. Below is a pic of Bran Castle, one of the amazing sites we'll be seeing. Be well everyone and I'll catch up with all of you in July.
Blessings
Karen
