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: Fall/New Beginnings
Now, at 65, it is more challenging to face new beginnings. But that doesn't mean I shouldn't have them. Here is my new beginning for this Fall: After my heart procedure on 11/17, I am going to begin researching small presses to publish my novel. That means I must write a query letter, synopsis, and select sample chapters. I must also begin a chart to track where and when I send a package out. I am
going to be gentle with myself with this process. I am going to set a time limit of say six months. If I am not successful by then, I will self-publish.
What does Fall mean for you?
