Hi, I hope all are well during this Sunday morning. I am coming here on to my blog to let you know of a couple of things. First of all my books are discounted during the week of March 3 through March 9.

I would also like to let you know that until further notice I am closing tell it to the world marketing due to a major technical difficulty.

A Touching and Creative Book

Book Review by Anne Chaippetta, Author of Upwelling, DLD Books.

Walking by Inner Vision: Stories and Poems

© 2017 By Lynda McKinney Lambert

A Touching and Creative Book

 

Note: For this review, I accessed this creative writing collection via the Kindle eBook reader app after purchasing the book on Amazon.

The depth of the author’s creativity brings together artistic mediums and presents them in a format inspired by the 12-month calendar and seasonal influences. She writes of the craft of writing and other visual arts with an understated ease. She forgoes pretensions and her voice is clear and concise from the first line to the last.

 

Lambert begins with winter, which she presents as a rebirth, of nature’s awakening. She recalls how the crispness of fresh snow reminds her of other childhood sensations.

 

From the winter, the musings and prose continue onto the spring, then summer, highlighting the personal and spiritual accents of which she finds inspiring.

 

In one poignant story, she describes a spiritual comforting as her daughter lies in the hospital fighting for her life. In this essay, Lambert expresses feeling helpless but also hopeful.

In another section, she shares her creative process,

which, as a writer, I found fascinating.

 

This unique and varied collection can be read at one’s leisure, something to keep on the coffee table or by the bedside for those times when a little inspiration and comfort is sought. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it for gift giving season for any creative individual.

A beautiful YEAR-LONG  journey through  16 poems and 27 non-fiction  stories

Sharing this because not only is the work stunning, the thoughts behind the work are so accurate and spot-on. Brandon lets you in on a secret, here. The secret is that what YOU SEE is not the ART. The ART is the process that the artist is navigating through to get to the end of the work. The ART WORK itself, is the TRACS left BEHIND by the ARTIST who was on a journey of discoveries.
Brandon, thank you for visiting my blog today – and keep on going. Share the joy of creation with the world.

Chaotic Shapes

dsc_0477Lately, I have had a weird schedule.

I apologize about the length of time in between posts.

Throughout this drawing, I have to keep reminding myself “one moment at a time Brandon.”

You have to appreciate the creative process. It is not always about the end result.

What matters the most is the “creative process.”

If you do not enjoy the adventure you get out of each piece you create. You should reconsider what you are creating.

Create with your soul and remember to use lots of love.

If the mind begins to create any false beliefs.

Remember anything is possible.

Put your heart/soul into what you are creating and anything can be created.

No one is stopping you from being you beside yourself.

Create art from your soul and not for the attention of people and their reaction.

Create to create.

Never create to impress.

If all you want…

What to Do After the First Draft

I am re-blogging this article for a couple of reasons.
First, I need to keep a copy of this for myself – a reminder of some things I need to be aware of as I continue on with my own book writing projects. This blog _ SCAN-a-BLOG is all about SHARING.

Two, I like to share information with others who may find a benefit from this article. I like to Share the Happiness!

A Writer's Path

by Katie McCoach

Your fingers hurt. Your eyes burn. You haven’t had anything to drink except coffee for the past few days, weeks, year. You are pretty sure you haven’t slept a full night without dreaming about characters and plot lines.

You are certain you will never type again. Because you finally finished writing the first draft of your novel. Phew!

FAUX STAINED-GLASS FOX – USE YOUR SCRAP CLAY CHALLENGE – DAY 4

Learn Polymer Clay

Hello dear friends!

This is Day 4 of the Use your Scrap Clay Challenge! I hope you`re having fun and that in the same time you look at your scrap clay with other eyes – seeing more possibilities.

I know I kept on storing scrap clay ( I also love working with polymer clay out of the box), but sooner or later you`ll have to find a solution for your pile of scrap clay.

In today`s tutorial we are going to use silver foil and alcohol inks (you can never go wrong with such a combination, you can only be amazed!) and Diamond Glaze on top for a resin-like finish. I`m using a fox stamp but you can use the stamps of your choice and I`m sure you`ll get an amazing result!

You can say that I`m only covering part of the scrap clay (with silver foil), while the sides…

Afternoon Sun

Sharing a beautiful poem today.
Sitting on a beach sounds wonderful doesn’t it?
Right now, we are in the deep freeze – with snow and ice and predictions of even lower temps and winds coming from the north.
May we all be “on a beach” occasionally, in our memories, as we move through the winter months – one day at a time.

Travels with Tio

for the first time 
in seeming months
we sat at water’s edge
mesmerized by stillness
listening
to the gentle lap of waves
feeling the warmth
of afternoon sun
slowly melt our frozen souls

shadows passed
as geese honked overhead
laughing children scurried by

Ah…
I heard a voice within

at last,
there is hope again

Campbells World

Good afternoon campbellsworld visitors. So glad you could drop into the Author’s Corner today.
This afternoon author Lynda McKinney Lambert has stopped by to share a bit of craziness from her life with us. I understand this is the beginnings of yet another book from her.

“Full Blueberry Moon”
-Preface-

First Draft 7 July 2018

Stories, like puffs of clouds I have watched, seem to float across a summer sky as I lay on the grass looking into the heavens.

Each wispy version of my own life story merges into other varieties of local gossip or family legends. The hovering layers keep moving in a myriad of word-driven implications – in and out of my consciousness…

NO LOOKING BACK IN 2019

BY: PATTY L. FLETCHER

JANUARY 2, 2019

“Today is yesterday’s tomorrow, and tomorrow is another day.”

I’m not sure who the author of that quote is but I’m sure of one thing, it goes right along with the theme I’ve chosen for myself in 2019.

‘NO LOOKING BACK’

Over the years I’ve wasted lots of time on looking behind me, worrying about things that cannot be changed, and trying to right wrongs that are no longer relevant to life and what it holds for me now.

Now, is the operative word in that sentence. Now, is where we are, and from where we must begin if we wish to go ‘Forward’ in our lives and make ‘Progress’ in the year to come.

This morning as I’ve been readying myself for the work that lies ahead of me in the coming year, regrettably I’ve come to…

Friday Favs – Aloe Vera: Winter Delights

Friday Favs: Aloe Vera: Winter Delights

 

I often begin my morning by checking

the daily issue of the Old Farmer’s Almanac –

I receive a Newsletter which  comes silently

each day

in my mailbox.

First,

I check the front page for the poem of the day.  The featured poem, or fragment of a poem or proverb or quote always has a beautiful photograph or art work that goes with it.  To see a photo with some creative text is  inspiring to me.   Do you enjoy seeing an artistic image with a poem?  I think it is a WIN-WIN when there are TWO CREATIVE WORKS side-by-side.

How do YOU feel about that?

I think of  a POEM PLUS PHOTO  as a

MARRIAGE MADE IN HEAVEN.

Word + Image = ART!

Below: Photo by Lynda McKinney Lambert.

Today –

I spotted some photos of  a type of succulent plant that I love.

I bought my first Aloe Vera about twenty years ago at a rare plant store in Georgia. We were visiting our daughter who lived in Georgia at that time.

The Rare Plant store  was a thrill for us to find.  I never was in such a  a store that sold rare plants – we purchased a few of them and a container to plant them in. This purchase was how  I started my succulent collection.

I bought a shallow terra-cotta planter that looks something like a pie dish.  The circular planter  is wide at the top and shallow – only about 3 inches deep. I still have the dish I purchased  and I still have several types of Aloe Vera plants.

Aloe Vera plants brighten our  rooms

from late fall to early spring. 

As soon as I am sure winter frosts are over,  my plants go outside to live on our wraparound porch for about 6 months a year.  They thrive in the bright light of the porch, yet they are protected from  rain and direct sunlight.  It is important to keep the plants out of the rain  because they will get too wet and begin to rot.  The need to be in containers of terra-cotta for good  drainage.

With good care you can have your Aloe Vera plants for many years.

Everything you ever want to know about t Aloe Vera Plants

Here is a poem I wrote when my Partridge Breasted Aloe was blooming.

“Partridge Breasted Aloe”

She thrust her pointed daggers

upward and outward

concave deep green leaves

adorned with white spots

front and back.

Basks in winter sunshine.

from a center core at the base

spiny and plump

with white designs

on the spruce green leaves.

 

Winter is flowering season

one long stem bursts above

like a quiet barn swallow

shooting up from the center

of a rosette in the springtime

one salmon pink flower

fills my mornings with a delicate scent

no fragrance can match

the fragile beauty of her perfume.

 

Partridge Breast is a sun worshipper

thrives in the south-facing window

prefers to drink less in winter.

 

Partridge Breast is the Queen of my collection

succulents and cacti, my delights.

Partridge Breasted Aloe brings

a sense of peace to my home.

When spring rains turn towards

Summer’s cat-like days

my succulent friends spend their

vacation on my sun-drenched porch

where no grooming is necessary.
