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 - fun fun fun!

They say a picture says a thousand words, so here's are some from folk dance camp:

I especially like that last picture. Things have certainly changed since my youthful folkdancing days in Los Alamos! We had our annual festival at the Taos Ski Lodge, which has probably lost all its character through renovations. Back then it was just a big log structure with a large cafeteria/dining hall downstairs and two bunk-filled dorm rooms upstairs -- one for men, one for women. About half the dancers were under 24.

But as much fun as we had, I don't think we had more than your group. Lovely banners!

Oh how fun! That last picture is cute.

Karen Walker said...

Alex, we even had a search for the grail with clues and everything. Adults and kids had a blast trying to find it.
Keith, it was!
Liza, thanks
Sharon, didn't know you folk danced. How cool!
Diane, yeah, I think so, too.
