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

I'm in a good mood!
I've been happy the last few weeks. In a good mood pretty much all of the time. When someone noticed and asked me why, the answer was simple. I'm writing again. I guess that tells me something pretty darned important. The act of writing is what makes me happy, not necessarily the end result. And all the crap, er, things, one needs to do once a writing project is completed. So for now, I'm simply going to enjoy my happy place of actually writing and not even think about after.
How about you?
