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

Monday Musings: Taking a break

Well, it's that time of year when the holidays roll around and family and friends gather. Everything in bloggydom kind of slows down and so will I. Not sure how long I'll unplug, but I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays, good health, and good cheer.
Till next time....I'm going to leave you with this quote:

Live not for the battle's end.
Live not for the end-of-the-song.
Live for the along.
                Gwendolyn Brooks

And she stopped…
for there along the way she heard the laughter
she longed to laugh but had forgotten how
Now she started...
to listen
to learn
to laugh
all while going along life's beaten path.

Happy Thanksgiving, Karen.
My giving of Thanks is that our paths crossed out here in the vastness of cyberspace.

Hugs to you, Jenny
