  2. Great job! I love reading the poems – and seeing the gorgeous photos – everyday. They always lift me and encourage me in some way… sometimes, just by only a word or a short phrase. Other times, the photos “feed” me when I can’t get out into the woods.

    Thanks for providing nourishment for my spirit!

  3. It is both uplifting and grounding to read these meditations. I love the poetry selections and so appreciate your reflections on the poems and on life as we are living it. I just haven’t figured out how you do this every single day!

  5. Hello, Emily! Yes, you are providing worthwhile content to me on a daily basis! I look forward to your posts. I love looking at the beautiful pictures and reading poetry-many of the poems are unfamiliar to me.

    But I also enjoy your personal reflections. I marvel that you are able to do this every day!

    Blessings to you for bringing a little balm into my day-especially during this challenging time, Donna Spaulding

  6. I found your website this summer and have become a regular subscriber. I also purchased copies of your book for each member of my book group. We are all (with one exception) 60-plus women of Christian persuasion, although some are more conservative and some are more progressive. Your posts hit just the right note for all of us: reflective, thoughtful, humble, insightful, authentic. And your photos are a delight! I look forward to reading your posts each day and if I have a busy day and don’t get to it, I save them up for later. Thank you so much and keep up the good work.

  11. Dear Arline,
    Of course, it always looks more beautiful when you can choose the pretty photos over the ones that aren’t so much, but I feel pretty lucky to be where I am with so much to see and record. Thank you for writing!
    Blessings,
    Emily

  14. Dear Janice,
    I’m very happy to hear the photos can be a substitute for you when you can’t get outside to the real thing. That is what I had hoped. So appreciate you writing to let me know my posts are of value to you!

  15. Ever so often a Barnstorming day or two slips by, but I excavate down through the strata of e-mail to disentomb igneous wrapped gems of poesy and rune. Your lens is my docent which spoils me one thousand words in one frame at a time. Unexplored authors by me, skillfully charted, I follow your lead, gratefully. Thank you Emily.

  17. From across the water and a slightly different use of the English language, – I have so appreciated for several years the delving in to “treasures old and new” – the poetry I did not know, your personal family stories and reflections, the stunning photography, particularly from different angles and the whole giving us new perspectives to enjoy and ponder.
    Thank you for your daily diligence, hard work and inspiration which allows me to stop too, – to wonder and also to send on as encouragements to others in our global ” family” as well as those who are “not yet” believers.

    I look forward to reading Barnstorming each day. You are such a gifted writer, poet, photographer, chronicler. You often express precisely how I’m feeling and experiencing life. Your column is nourishing, nurturing, refreshing, and helpful in many subtle ways.

  21. I always appreciate your daily thoughts! I LOVE the pictures exhibiting the incredible artwork of the Creator. I have never been drawn to poetry but developing a greater appreciation. You have a gift with words and express your heart with transparency-a willingness to be vulnerable, a call to greater love of God and neighbor. Your words are grace-filled and encouraging!❤️
