This alone makes the world a more level playing ground. Many times, you think that those with fame are different than the people you know in your community. Having a dialog with them, however fleeting, brings understanding.

I can't even begin to say how much you've helped me and changed my life, starting way back with reading Wishcraft for the first time. I've read all your books and have been active on the barbarasher.com Boards for many years.
I'm sitting here speechless (well, type-less!) All I can think of to say is "Thank You" and that doesn't even begin to say what you've meant to me in this lifetime.
I'll give it a try.
Using your methods, I found a house to live in when I could only afford an apartment. I created a real-live success team plus a wonderful support thread on your boards to help me finish writing a masters thesis. I got my sweater designs published in leaflets and books. I got to see sweaters I designed walk the runway in a fashion show. I got invited to teach knitting classes at national conventions because people saw the designs that got published.
I've done so many things that I never would have done by breaking them down into baby steps and asking for support. Asking for support was something I never did for anything until I read your books. I thought I had to do everything alone (that's what my parents taught me). That's all I can think of for now but I'll come back and add things when I think of them.
You've changed the way I approach doing anything in my life, basically. You've changed the way I think about things, the way I interact with people, my belief systems.
Well, that's it for now but I know there's a lot more! For now...........THANK YOU! I wish you the best with your "retirement".
Oh, yeah, and you taught me how to inspire people with my own actions and words!
