Lynda's Mission Statement

I seek EUPHORIA through art and writing.
As a Keeper of Memories, I distill and share through art and writing.

I reveal things forgotten, lost, or unseen.

I write spare poems and thoughtful, personal essays.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
My creative process is in clearly defined steps.
First - I become aware of non-verbal impulses - a sort of fluttering inside of me.
It is like a gentle sense of urgency that is something physical I begin to feel.

Second - I begin to order the space in which I work. I organize any clutter, sort through any put papers or items . I cannot work if there is disorder because it is a distraction.

Third - I begin to lay down a structure on which the poem, essay, or artwork will begin.

Fourth - I work back and forth between ADDING and SUBTRACT ING. I BUILD and I DESTROY.
It is a dance with materials - senses - images. I order chaos and find balance.

Songs for the Pilgrimage

A pilgrimage is a religious journey. Pilgrimage has been an abiding theme in my writing for many years. My first book was inspired by my annual journeys to Salzburg, Austria, where I taught a drawing and writing course. I revised and expanded that book of poems, historical notes, and journal entries for this new book, which features writings, drawings, and photographs I created over four decades.

The author covers a wide terrain of subjects, from lights to legends to seasons, with images of plants, people, and weather. The poetic gems shimmer like beads on her prize–winning fabric art. Her attentiveness to nature and strong reflections from memory have woven a beautiful tapestry for us, offering a wonderful feast for the eyes and the mind. —Wesley D. Sims, author of Taste of Change
