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: updates

I got an I Pad and so far, I love it. Haven't tried writing on it yet, other than emails comments, but next week I plan to start interviews for my new nonfiction project.

Things with my friend's estate are moving along and are not totally overtaking my life any more. Whew!

I started dancing around my living room several times a week (notice I am NOT calling this exercise).

I think I can now safely say my heart procedure worked. I feel so much better than I have in two years. Now I just need to get in better shape!

I am aching to get back to re-writing Part III of my novel. I am hoping I can carve out some time next week.

What are musing about today?

This is all wonderful news, Karen! So glad things are going so well for you.

I'm musing about taxes...ugh. :( Appointment this morning.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Glad you feel better!!
And cool you got an iPad. Aren't they awesome devices?

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Don't call the dancing exercise. Then you won't want to do it.

Karen Walker said...

Elizabeth, ugh, taxes.
Alex, thanks - yes, I'm loving it!
Diane, I am purposely not calling it that.

Dancing is excellent exercise. I mean fun fat burning activity. Whatever. I miss it. My shoulder is so much better... maybe in a few months I can start the lessons again.... I hope!

Fantastic news, Karen! Especially the dancing. It means JOY is home to roost :)

Sharon Lippincott said...

Sounds like you are adapting well to the smaller keyboard. Happy dance time! You might still want to install the free iTalk recording app on phone and/or iPad if you don't have it yet. And thanks for the reminder to dance around at home.

I call walking around the house exercise. Heck, I was in a waiting room yesterday and rather than sit I stood and paced for 20 minutes and figured that was some kind of exercise.
