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

Telling the Truth Tuesday: Thanksgiving

I have a lot to be grateful for this year. I am looking forward to having my health back, once my heart heals from the procedure. I have a novel to publish. I have a loving, kind, gentle husband and fabulous family. I have incredible friends. I am doing something I've always wanted to do, singing and dancing for older folks with Sugartime. I will folk dance again--another passion.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Cheers Hilary

Do everything the doctors say and heal. And let someone else do the cooking this year!
