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

With that, of course, comes all sorts of feelings. The story deals with subject matter that could be considered controversial. Hopefully, what that means is that it will trigger dialogue. I usually tend to avoid conflict of any kind. When you're a writer, that's impossible.
I've listened to the voice and written down the words. Once I put those out in the world, however folks respond is not up to me, is it? It's all about trusting myself and trusting my path.
Keep your fingers crossed for me, okay?
