The PBS Blog

Today, I’d like to extend a warm welcome to Lynda McKinney Lambert. Welcome to the PBS Blog! Let’s get started.

What is your name and where are you from?

I am an Indie Author and visual artist, Lynda McKinney Lambert. I live and work in The Village of Wurtemburg, located in western Pennsylvania.

What would your perfect writing / reading room look like?

First, after my sight loss, I wanted to share my experiences with others. Since it took me 2 years to be able to use a computer again, I thought that creating a blog would be a good achievement for me and I would use the blog as my way of connecting with other people. I wanted to share my experiences in sight loss and give encouragement and help to others. That is why I called the blog, Walking by Inner Vision. This, of course, led me to…

“Walking by Inner Vision: Stories & Poems” by Lynda McKinney Lambert

Patty, thank you so much for sharing my book review that was published on Nessie’s Place this week. All of the stories in my book, Walking by Inner Vision: Stories & Poems, were written after my sudden sight loss. They are memoirs with connections to history, myth, and growing up in western Pennsylvania. The most common comment I get is that the reader did not want the book to end! That makes me very happy. Thank you for posting this – I truly appreciate all that you do for fellow writers.

#BlogTour “Visions (Same Face Different Place Book 2)” by Helen J. Christmas

This book sounds like a great read – watch the video. Best of everything to you.

Nesie's Place

bannercoverVisions is a psychological thriller set in rural England. The year is 1985. It’s been 12 years since Eleanor escaped London, discarding the fragments of her tragic past to discover a new life. She is hiding in a remote country village, a place where she truly believes she is safe.

Her neighbour, James Barton-Wells is desperate to save his historic country house from ruin but this has attracted the attention of a wealthy property developer from London whose seemingly altruistic offer to ‘bankroll the restoration’ masks a sinister game plan. Suspicious of his motives, Eleanor consults her friend, Charles Bailey. But Charlie has his own story, fearful that Perry Hampton is the man who undoubtedly destroyed his own life.

The characters are drawn together in a battle to save Westbourne House, oblivious to the menace that surrounds them. Threats, stalking and deception lie at the root of the Hamptons evil…

Saturday is for Sharing #3 – SGA & Mud Monkey

Saturday is for Sharing #3

SATURDAY…is my special day to recognize

people, places, and organizations


 Today’s Feature is to honor:

The Art Society of Slippery Rock University of PA,

& Potter’s Guild at Slippery Rock University of PA


Slippery Rock Alum, Anthony DeRosa

(AKA MudMonkey)

Anthony’s Pottery can ve viewed at:

The SGA Student Art Gallery

Click Here for more about the SGA Art Gallery


Fine Art students at Slippery Rock University of PA  created a student run  art gallery on campus  this year. . When I learned about this adventure, I wanted to support it  with a gift to help support future  exhibitions.

Today, I learned about a special gift donation  of

Hand crafted pottery by Anthony DeRosa.

He also wanted to help art students raise funds.   He gifted some of his stunning pottery to the organization to be used to help this become a reality in some way.  I received one of the mugs made by Anthony in the mail today.  I am enjoying my morning coffee which is in one of Anthony’s beautiful mugs. What an amazing piece of art it is – and it will be treasured by me for many years to come.

I hope other graduates of the SRU Art programs will join in  to support the new art gallery and help  art students in a variety of ways in the future.  Congratulations to SGA and the creation of a Student Gallery at Slippery Rock University of PA.  I know that the sky is the limit for these current art students. And, this new gallery provides training that would not be possible without it.


I remember the excitement of being involved in art classes & exhibitions as a former BFA major at SRU.  The completion of my degree opened door for me that were remarkable.  My academic and professional life provided exhibition and teaching experiences across  the US and in a number of other countries over the ensuing years.

This new student-run gallery is a ground-breaking idea and I was glad to know about the project. I personally know the value of student learning and  how to do the business of making art and getting work out before the public through exhibitions. This new gallery is a key factor in the future success of the students.

If you would like to be a donor, no matter the amount, I know the students would be so grateful for your help.  You can get more information on the websites I have given above.

When I Think About

Little Treasures




Sometimes precious gifts come

at unexpected moments.


Sometimes, in a quiet, gentle moment –

I often think about small things. I have realized recently that I tend to be a Curator of Small Things. It was a revelation to me when I discovered this hidden truth about myself.

I even wrote a poem titled, “To the Curator of Small Things.” It is a letter to myself – a collector of small things.

You can listen to this poem, read by Melissa Coddon, as it was published by Wordgathering Literary Magazine, September Issue 2017.  Click here to listen.

Little things in our everyday life matter more than we realize. Look around where you are. What is it that you surrounArt_PaperBowl,Flicker Featherd yourself with, in the privacy of your own home?

What makes you smile?

I call them…Little Treasures.


Today is chilly and rainy. We had some sunshine, but it’s been mostly overcast with a few moments of roaring thunder and an outburst of rain. The overcast day and the rain is welcome today.  I realized this weather is an important gift  because this day gave me time to work inside the house and I am content.

Yes, I said, today it rained! This is good. Now I won’t be able to go outside and pull weeds because it is too wet.  The poison ivy and the overgrown weeks will be there another day for me to deal with.  Instead, I’ll go upstairs and work in my studio for the day. I have nearly completed  a talisman. It’s on my work table. Truthfully, the unfinished talisman has been on my work table  for months. Too many to mention.  Much too long. I began working today to get it finished. It feels good to know I am nearly done with this new piece of art. And, the piece is turning out so different from what I first envisioned. Art is like that. It never fails. My art takes on a life all it’s own in the process of working on it. There are always surprises and challenges in the process. It’s a journey. And, I often think it is a pilgrimage. I am going somewhere when I pick up the first bits of materials. As the piece grows, so do I. Little things like this help me practice patience. They take time and concentration. I have to stay focused and centered. While I am putting together all the tiny pieces, I am at the same time, putting me together, too. I might be a frazzle or feel anxious when I sit down to work, but I start. And, soon, I am at a peaceful place and it’s good. I am piecing together the colorful fragments.

When I opened my E-mail this morning there was a short note waiting for me. An editor told me he plans to publish my poem in the next book he is working on at this time. He asked about changing a couple of words in the final line. Just a little change. I agreed, his suggestion is good. It was just a small thing. But, small things are important. Just a word can make a difference.

I think of our pets as little treasures, too. We took our two dogs, Miss Dixie Tulip and Miss Mitchell into town today and left them to be groomed. When we came back two and a half hours later, they were barking and dancing about with excitement. They look so clean and smell so nice. I realized what a blessing our pets are to us.  Little treasures. Our 2 cats and 2 dogs are rescued animals. Someone else had discarded them but they became our beloved treasures. As I write this blog post, our cat, Miss Bessie is cleaning her legs and feet. And, Miss Opal is having an afternoon cat nap. It’s quiet today. Peaceful.

These are just a few of the  little fragments of time and place that complete my day.

Think about your day and the little treasures you have enjoyed.

What gives you pleasure?

What are the precious moments of your day that give you contentment, at the end of the day?

Consider what it is that may seem like a little thing, but that is an enormous part of your life.
