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 now have 10,000+ words on the re-write of Part III of my novel. I can't tell yet if it's better than the original, but I know I got a clear message that it needed to be re-written. Oy!
I have arranged several interviews for the nonfiction piece I began four years ago.
I was felled by a flu last Wednesday and lost the rest of the week but today is a new day and I am ready to go.
On the home front:
I am getting used to the new arrangement of our home, with the pool table in the living room. I really like the new living room, which, depending on the moment and my mood, I am calling the parlor or the den. It's cozy. The room is much smaller than I thought and several pieces from our original living room could not fit. So of course, now we have to have a garage sale. Which, of course, we can't do until we go through the other rooms, trying to eliminate clutter.
On the travel front:
My hubby is not much of a reader, except for train magazines and Harry Potter. He loved the Harry Potter series and has been wanting to go to Universal Studios in Orlando since the Harry Potter exhibit opened. We have a special friend who is graduating high school in May and she also wanted to go see this particular exhibit. She will also ride roller coasters with hubs, which I will not do after the last time I went on the Cyclone at Coney Island and nearly had a heart attack. So we are taking her for her graduation present. Can't wait.
How about you? What's going on in your world?
