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: hearts docs and our hearts
I'm back home from my son's wedding. It was so very beautiful. I can't stop looking at the pictures, which I'm sorry to say I can't share because he's a very private person. If you've read my memoir, you know what this event means to me. I have no words.
When I returned home I had an appointment with another cardiologist for a second opinion. This is the third heart doc I've seen. I am going to stick with this one and on 11/17 have a procedure called an ablation to fix the A-fib and fast heart rate. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
But here's what I want to talk about. Three cardiologists--doctors who specialize in fixing our hearts--the home of our emotions. Yet not one of these docs are warm and fuzzy. I find that so incredibly odd. Don't you?
