  1. Hi I have just sent you a comment, but then read your blog, its beautiful. And I want to say I feel the same many times and I have come to realise that for me a need a purpose that is greater than me, to fulfill that empty feeling. I found that recently when i went to Sri Lanka and set up a project, however I lost belief that I can do it. Therefore I have come to know that it is first important to take time to become who you want to be, and then take action towards what you want in your heart, then you can have what you desire. Ask your heart what you truly want and go for it! Take care

  2. Beth, you have a wonderful way of writing, and of looking at the world. I have heard that we can not help others until we help ourselves. Perhaps. But maybe, in helping others, we learn to help ourselves in the process. Don’t lose belief in yourself. Just keep trying. Perhaps closer to home than Sri Lanka (that sounds so far – you are brave), but wherever you find your next challenge. Nothing is a failure. Just a test.

  3. OMG! Thanks so much for putting me in your links! It may seem a simple thing, but I
    m so jazzed to be there! Yay! I’ve been feeling quite alone out there, as I don’t really understand all the “linky stuff” to do. Thank you, thank you!

  4. I look at the Links list as sort of my “to do” list – it’s my way of keeping track of sites I want to return to. I try to spend at least a few minutes each day reading, getting inspired, learning from others. Not a bad few minutes spent…

  5. Your life remids me of all the books I read growing up…my favorite author was Louis L’Amour. He wrote so many books about the west and did a series on a family called the “Sackett’s”.

    I read all his books…you and your family remind me of people he would write about. That is a compliment.

  6. Thank you, I am honored!

  7. LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog! We are fairly new to the mountains, having completed a house in Angel Fire, NM just over a year ago. Granted, it’s not like living in a cabin and learning how to live off-grid, but it has certainly been a learning experience coming from a town outside of Dallas, Tx and adjusting to living in the southern Rockies! Lots of new things to experience and figure out…hopefully, I can share some of that on my blog. I am using YOUR BLOG as inspiration to be a better writer, and to share things that MATTER! Thanks so much!

  8. I seam to not know your e-mail any more what is it know a days.

  9. Sorry Marv – you can write us at, or Looking forward to hearing from you – and seeing you – soon!
