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 couldn't wait to share this

Today I uploaded the anthology to Amazon - now I wait for the digital and physical proofs - once those are approved - the book will be ready for sale. I couldn't wait for all of that before sharing the cover here with all of you since you've shared this journey thus far with me of bringing this book into the world. Unless something is wrong with the cover once I receive the proofs, this is what the book looks like. So so excited...

Blessings,
Karen

Congratulations on reaching the final step in this birthing process. You had a dream and believed in it. Even in the face of the many who were unable to rise to your challenge to contribute, you persisted. You found the submissions. You made it happen. This has to be a magnificent feeling! Brava! Brava! All blessings upon it. Maybe it be absorbed by thousands of eyes.
