Big Bend Author Highlight: Elizabeth A. Garcia — “We lose ourselves in books . . . We find ourselves there too.” That’s me to a tee.

Hope you all are having a great Memorial Day weekend! So much adventure to be had and it warms the heart to see so many people willing to venture out to our far flung desert parts of Texas! Remember we always have room over here at Big Bend Ranch State..
Just wanted to share something that REALLY made my day. Such super generous words – I swear I didn’t edit or encourage her in any way 😉 — Just a relief that it all came through. It was a really great opportunity to touch over 200 people with my handmade..
I help admin #bigbendranchsp — Big Bend Ranch State Park’s official fan page – and found this awesome pic . . . so awesome that I had to do a double-take. I posted “Do you need a moment like this?” Lordy – don’t we all?! #nightsky #darkskies #stars #nightphotography..

Maybe you need a ticket to ride . . .
A hopeful look at how the earth is always the answer – just take the time to listen . . .

Someone told me the other day, “The world has gone crazy and there’s no escaping it . . . ” Maybe its the mama-optimism in me, but I just raised my eyebrows and my heart ached a little with pity. Have they driven down our quiet, sweet desert roads . …
