  1. I remember Karen talking about this book, a book she was driven to write. It sounds definitely up my alley.
    Sadly the voices which try and guide me are largely negative, and I do my best to shut them up.

    1. Elephant's Child, my guiding voices were negative for most of my life as well. You can train yourself to hear the voice of Light. I promise.

  2. Hi Mason and Karen - it does sound a good read ... especially as it deals with Scotland and has some legends ... it's brilliant that Karen has been able to bring the story to life ... hearing those whispers on the wishing steps ... cheers Hilary

  3. I know Karen!
    A voice doesn't guide me, but God's spirit does.

  4. Excited for Karen!

    I think a voice does try to speak to me sometimes, but I frequently don't listen to it! Glad that Karen did.

    1. Elizabeth, our intuitive voices are there to help us, I think.

  5. The question of how we're guided to do what we do is fascinating, Mason. Thanks for sharing this.

    1. Yes, Margot, I think that's a sub-theme in my book - we're all guided in different ways and we need to respect that.

  6. Congrats to Karen.

    I thought it was a voice but it was just my cat. And shame she doesn't speak English because I didn't understand a word of it.

  9. That's a great idea for a book. This makes me think how entwined we are with others and the past.
