Thank you! :-)

2. tracybarnett - August 10, 2009

Thanks for your comments, Elaine. I wish I’d had more time to check out all the great places that Matagorda has to offer. I will look for them next time around!

3. Randall Montalbano - August 13, 2009

Tracy, would you please contact me re: a potential writing assignment?

4. Maria Hilda Pinon - August 27, 2009

Just read your story on Huffington Post and carrying the fire!

It is a wonderful perspective and hopefully you will fuel the greater fire of transformation radically needed in this age. Keep writing.

Hola Tracy! pasé por aquí a decirte que me encanta tu sitio web! éxitos!

Just read your article in AAA Texas magazine (Jan/Feb 2010) and I am disappointed a Houston gal went all the way to the Dallas area and the Hill Country with no mention of a mighty fine group of Bluegrass players and singers in League City every third Saturday except December. Bay Area Bluegrass Association has been pickin since the 80’s there. Their festival is Fire on the Strings in Conroe in May. bayareabluegrass.org

I don’t play an instrument or sing, but have enjoyed going there every now and then to just listen in for the (free) show and the 3 or 4 rooms of jammin going on all evening.

I just read about True Bluegrass/Just Fiddlin Around in the AAA Texas Journel.
On your web page I learned that you lost your job. I can relate to that. I lost mine a age 55 but it worked our for the best. All one can do is pick your self up, dust off, and get going abain.
But that not what I am writing you about. My wife is president of the Texas Czech Heritage and Cultural Center, Inc in La Grange, TX. They have a state of the art out door 430 seat amphitheater complete with concession stands and indoor restroom. The center is located on about 40 acres of ground and the Fayette County Fair ground is accross the road. There is ample space for RV’s and parking
Apprantly you are big in Bluegrass. The amphitheater would be a good place to have a festival. Prehaps you could help us find some one who would be intrested putting on a festival.
Check out our web pabe http://www.czechtexas.org., email address czechtx@verizon.net. Phone 888 785 4500
Thank you and good luck with your new career.

I recently read an article in the Jan/Feb 2010 Texas Journey about you and bluegrass music. I am 82 year old “lover” of bluegrass and old-time country western music.

Do you have any other material on bluegrass music?

If so, I would appreciate receiving copies of what you have.

Thanks ver much.

Fred Vance

Hey Tracy,
Completely envious of your travels and experiences as usual…get in touch soon as we have some ideas in mind for your participation in our 2010 Summer Literary Festival!

Hola Tracy:
Soy la persona que conversó contigo en el restaurante Las Puertas.
Estoy impresionado, mis comentarios serían irrelevantes. No puedo evitarle mi opinión a nadie, cuando se trata de asuntos de mi País,de lo cual en general me considero bién informado.
Me gustaría conversar de asuntos Ambientales y Culturales; los cuales solo pueden cobrar importancia a través del matiz mediático.
Ni La Ciencia ni El Arte se salvan…
Saludos Cordiales.

Greetings From Lakota Territory:
It was such a brief and amazing time spent with the Brotherhood from the South. We all enjoyed ourselves and the new connections towards the bigger picture of the Preservation Movement. You are here for the reason you were put there and now here. It was a nice spiritual memory to builld and to continue the prayers. Until then, best to you and yours.

Thank you so much for your comment, Arpita! I will be delighted to have the English version of “The Butterfly Effect” appear in TerraGreen. It’s a beautiful magazine. I look forward to seeing how we can collaborate. Cheers!

I found your name in the Memorial Buzz “Travel Buzz” section and wanted to let you know that my daughter (Elyce, 16 yr old, Stratford HS student) returned from a 3 week trip to Tanzania with the “Overland Summers” group last month. This was her 2nd trip with the organization (Alaska 2013). Elyce worked in an orphanage, went on safari, and climbed Kilimanjaro during her time there.
The confidence and the sense of accomplishment that she returned with is great to see. I feel that it is a good story to tell and one that may inspire younger readers to want to do the same.
I wanted to see if her adventure would be something you’d be interested in possibly publishing in the Travel Buzz.

Thank you,

Leon Skrivanek
