Hello, and welcome to my blog.
I am Lynda McKinney Lambert
I make mixed-media fiber art and write poetry and creative non-fiction.
I live with my husband, Bob, our 3 cats and 2 dogs along the banks of the Connoquenessing Creek in western Pennsylvania. We live in the Village of Wurtemburg. Our 5 children are grown but our century-old home is still filled with the sounds and memories of our many years together.
I am the author of two books:
My first book, Concerti: Psalms for the Pilgrimage (Kota Press, 2003) – historical notes, reflections, poems, and short essays which I wrote over a period of years during my summers in Austria. I kept detailed diaries and made sketches in my journals. Later, I collected them and created this book.
My most recent book, Walking by Inner Vision: Stories & Poems (2017) is about my life after I lost most of my sight due to Ischemic Optic Neuropathy in 2007. I wrote the stories & poems in this book over a 7-year period as I experienced life in new ways. I organized this book as a travelogue through a year from January through December. http://www.dldbooks.com/lyndalambert
My professional life began at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania where I earned a BFA degree in painting and an MA in English. Between these two degrees, I was in residency in Morgantown, WV where I earned the MFA in painting from West Virginia University. I feel deeply rooted in western Pennsylvania where my ancestors arrived in 1730 to begin life in America.
Both are a deeply personal spiritual journey. I explore what it means to follow Jesus as an author, visual artist, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother from my vantage point in this century.
So, you are wondering,
“What are your themes?”
My big themes include dreaming prayers; finding joy in making art and writing; walking with God and reading his Word for guidance; prayer for everything immense or miniscule; the power of thankfulness; the passage of time and the magic of timelessness.
I also find imagery in nature; a walk in the woods with my dogs, watching the creek flowing just over the ridge; reading books from the ancient past; reading books from contemporary writers; myth & history; meditations; and interactions with friends and family.
Please come walk with me through my blog posts, books, and visual art.
