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

Insecure Writers Support Group - April

I'm back home in NM for a week - a break from caring for the now 4-month-old twin grandbabies. Hubby and I are having so much fun taking care of these two little munchkins. I love seeing what new things they discover each day - a hand, a foot, each other. One rolled over from her tummy to her back the other day - the next day the other one did it. It's hard for me to imagine them crawling, then walking, then running, and talking. I have my insecurity around being an older grandparent and just how long I'll be around to watch them grow into the beings they are meant to be, but I tell myself to enjoy each moment and stay in the present. I do want to begin writing to them, but while I'm caring for them, there's no energy for that.

Stay tuned and blessings....
Karen
