Today’s Brilliance by Scott Milford

Each week we select our favorite submission for Today’s Brilliance from anyone who cares to contribute to our blog. (Details are available here.) This week’s Brilliance comes to us from Scott Milford. Scott writes as @scottquitter on Twitter and Scott Quitter on I grew up often confused by the behaviors and actions of other people. Too often, people would say one thing then do another. Naturally, I assumed this was how things were done. After many years using this method, I started to question this way of doing things, but only after I suffered much heartache and pain from… Read more.

Lions, Tigers and BEARS! (Oh My!)

Last week I posted a blog from Montana, about a noise that we heard on two different nights. Many of you wrote to me to ask if we ever figured out what caused it. The short answer is that we never did determine the cause of the “clink, clink, clink” noise. The long answer is that we were right to be cautious in roaming around the mountains in the dark of night. Just after I posted that blog it rained. The next day I went for a walk on the lane leading up to the main ranch home. I was… Read more.


Last week I was blindsided by a state. Not a state of mind, but by the state of Montana. Our family went to visit a ranch we owned for nearly ten years but sold in 2004. We expected to have a great time with family and reconnect with Nature, but I didn’t expect to turn my life upside down. Montana captured my heart the first time I visited in 1993, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised it happened once again. The result of our family vacation? Darryl and I are moving to Montana! As crazy as this may sound,… Read more.

Whatever We Imagine

Two evenings ago Darryl and I were sitting outside on the deck at a ranch in Montana we’re visiting. Just the two of us on 310 acres, surrounded by the Swan Mountains and 2 million acres of National Forest Service wilderness land, alone with just the wildlife, miles from the nearest neighbor. This land is home to grizzly and black bears, elk, moose, deer, coyotes, wolves and more. We enjoyed the sun until after 9:30pm, but when it finally dropped below the mountain, it became very dark, very fast. The sky was full of more stars than we’ve ever seen… Read more.

Regret vs. Gratitude

Regret is something that none of us want and yet all of us have. It’s the rare human that doesn’t feel regret over some aspect of their life. The past few days have been a time of introspection for me over a decision I made five years ago. For about ten years I owned a place in Montana called Dreaming Bear Ranch, which was my refuge from the world. I searched for three years to find this spectacular piece of heaven.  As a result of divorce and the resulting financial situation, I sold Dreaming Bear Ranch in 2004 as a… Read more.
