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

You look really happy!

congratulations - may you have another 20. Your book The Wishing Steps looks interesting. I wonder if you can add a link in so when someone clicks it they are brought to a page to purchase the book. Just a thought as it would make things easier for a potential buyer. Have a great day and the cake looks yummy.

Truedessa, that's a great idea - I'll try to figure out how to do it. Thanks.

Congratulations! All of your pictures gave me an early morning smile. Everyone looks like they're having a great time. What are you all doing in some of those pics? Squaredancing? Whatever you were doing, everyone seems happy.

Happy anniversary! You two look wonderful together.

Arlee Bird, it's folk dancing - cultural dances from around the world
Diane, thanks so much

Folk dancing makes sense, but I guess square dancing has its roots in some kind of folk dancing. I've never thought of that until now. In the still pictures it looks similar.
