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

Dancing at the castle

Folk dance camp was held at Montezuma Castle in Las Vegas, New Mexico this year. A spectacular setting - the castle was built in the 1880's by Fred Harvey. Here are some pics.

Insecure Writer's Support Group - August

Once again, thanks to Alex alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com for this wonderful group. Please check out Alex's blog to find out all the scoop.
I'm insecure this month but not about my writing. It's about my body and how I look. I will probably blog a about it at some point but I'm not ready to do it now. Anyways, I'm out of town at folk dance camp, so can't really participate today. Just wanted to say I hope you are all doing well and will catch up next month.
