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

Summer hiatus

It's been awhile since I've written a post other than to say I'm not writing, but I wanted to let you know that I'm going to be caring for my twin grandbabies all of July, August and September and I know I won't have time to post, so I'm going to take a summer hiatus from blogging and hopefully return late September, when I get home to Albuquerque.

I can't wait to be with those two little munchkins full time again. Since I've been away I feel as if a limb is missing. Wish I could post pics, but parents have decided no photos on internet and I respect that (and agree with it) other than I wish you could see how adorable they are!

Wishing you all a fun-filled, happy summer and I'll catch up with everyone in the Fall.
