tell your story
I wanted to just check in with you all. Where are you in your journey? Are you a dreamer at a desk in some city or are you about to head out on your horse to check cattle in the back pasture? Write in the comments about where you are at, both your location in the world and how far you have come in your dreams. Also share where you were 5 years ago. If you never commented before, introduce yourself. You might find that another dreamer is literally in the town next to you, and together your combined Barnheart could fuel each other into action! I know that happened when I befriended Patty Wesner. When I met her last January at a book reading I didn't know her from Adam. She invited me for a horse cart ride/lesson and now less than a year later we are putting together Merlin's red cart to join her in a Sunday drive!
I think your stories of dreaming of a farm will inspire others to let themselves dream, and for those of you who are taking steps to turn your dreams into reality - your stories are ignition sparks. When people read about other couples, families, single folks and such taking the leap, they see they can do it too.
So tell me who you are, where you are from, and where you are at in your own story? I'd really appreciate it.
