"Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go." - Source Unknown

I hadn't kept up with many things on my website since the end of spring. Unexpected setbacks, the death of my dear sister, the loss of some work... it's called "life".

As the seasons change, I'm getting back into the swing of things. I thank you all for your patience. I still urge you to:

Hug your babies,

and everyone else you can.

Give time to yourself as often as you can.

Share your stories every way you can. And, in the words of some dear students, in memoriam for their beloved principal, LOVE OUT LOUD!

 THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE SUPPORTED MY STORYTELLING.

Lyn's books are available from her publisher,

Parkhurst Brothers, www.parkhurstbrothers.com

and several book distributors: Amazon, Barnes & Noble... A Google title or name search gets you there!

Look for new titles from Parkhurst Brothers and ABC-CLIO, developed and written with dear friend and fellow storyteller/teaching artist, Sherry Norfolk and coming soon!

I'm also getting many calls for creative writing workshops.

I am so grateful for my connections to this organization, and the works of heart that it nurtures and supports. For more information, go to tlanetwork.org
