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: Making changes
Sooo, I got this hare-brained idea to make our living room, which is a much larger room, into a game room. Weird that when you walk into our house you will now walk into a room with a pool table, a piano, and a card/game table and the former pool-table room, which is in the back of the house, will be a cozy living room/den/. It took us all day Saturday to take stuff out of cabinets and bookshelves, shampoo the rugs and put stuff in the garage we don't know what to do with now. Tomorrow, the moving guys are coming to move the furniture. we didn't want to risk hurting our friends' backs.
All because I decided I needed to clear out space, both internally and externally My poor poor hubby.
Are you like me? Are your significant others like me? Oy!
