This is my 150th BLOG POST on WALKING BY INNER VISION, a Blog.
Note from Lynda:
I am celebrating this milestone with a Book Review by Anne Chaippetta.
I started this blog 9 years ago, December 2009, just after I lost most of my sight. After a lot of rehabilitation for the blind, I was able to use a computer again.
Beginning this blog was an enormous step of faith at that time – and THIS YEAR my 2nd BOOK was published – Walking By Inner Vision: Stories & Poems – tells the story of my struggle to RECOVER my CREATIVE SELF and pursue my ART AND WRITING career.
At that time I could not imagine ever doing either one AGAIN. But I persevered and broke through the barriers. Today, I write and make art full-time.
Anne Chiappetta, author of Upwelling, wrote a notable review on my newest book, Walking by Inner Vision: Stories & Poems.
Ann’s book is edited by the same editors as mine. This review is a good one and much appreciated.

A Touching and Creative Book
For this review, I accessed this creative writing collection via the Kindle eBook reader app after purchasing the book on Amazon This review has also been submitted to Amazon as a customer review.
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 into spring and 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 a 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.
