To quiet the voices in her mind, Sylvia Harris tried all of the above. At times, her manic behavior led her to dress up as a cowgirl and show off her rope skills in the middle of a quaint Northern California village. At its worst, it led her to look for love in all the wrong places and create a family she had difficulty caring for. While she occasionally found temporary relief, darkness always followed. At the nadir of her twenty-year battle with bipolar depression, Harris found salvation in the most unlikely of places-Cardinal Farm, an equine ranch outside Orlando, Florida.
