A Voice Wavering

August 15, 2017
I wanted to be big, real. Heard.

— Lucinda J. Miller, Anything But Simple

I don’t know what it is in me that drives me to want to be heard. Once upon a time, a friend told me that she had detected a repressed desire of mine—repressed because I am a woman, and a Mennonite. You practically shout in your public and private writings, ‘I want to preach!’ she wrote. Makes me want to scream, ‘Yes, you can!’ Preaching …

Oh, the Places You’ll Go

August 8, 2017

Mifflintown, Pennsylvania York, Pennsylvania Lancaster County, Pennsylvania Mercersburg, Pennsylvania Harrisonburg, Virginia South Boston, Virginia Sadly, I forgot to take pictures about half the time, so I don’t have a record of everyone I have spent time with on this trip. But in all my stops, it has been ever so good to connect with old friends and new friends. My life is richer by the …

New Faces, New Friends

August 1, 2017

I am pretty sure I stole that title from somewhere: maybe a school reader. It has that annoying, alliterative ring to it. Ah, well. After an enjoyable launch day in my home community, I set out for Berne, Indiana, to kick off a two-week book tour and to sell books. From Berne I traveled to Pittsburgh, where I enjoyed new sights, beautiful old buildings, and …

How to Be a Mennonite Author (First Clue: I Don’t Know)

July 25, 2017

My good friend/adopted little sister and I set out for Nashville, Tennessee, last week to pick up books. Lots of books. 988, to be exact, because Lucinda J. Miller, who always overdoes everything, got the brilliant idea not only to be an author but to sell her own books. Lots of them. Ask her in about a year from now how that’s going for her. …

Segue

July 18, 2017

Segue: to make a transition without interruption from one activity, topic, scene, or part to another (Merriam Webster online dictionary) I learned this word only within the last couple of years. From the beginning, I loved it. What other word describes transition with such finesse? I segue from Deer Lake, Ontario, to Sheldon, Wisconsin. I segue from wiggly brown bodies: …to wiggly white ones. From …

Moose Hunt

July 11, 2017

An unsuccessful fishing trip turned moose hunt when someone spotted three moose over near the shore. Our laughter and talking stilled immediately and, following whispered directions, we traded places in the boat and gave Bruce the spot in the front, where he crouched, gun ready. Johnny sped up, heading straight toward the moose, which everyone had seen by now but me. There were three of …

Happy Canada Day! From Deer Lake, Ontario

July 4, 2017

So while all my American friends are celebrating the Fourth of July, I am in Canada. And my Canadian friends, instead of celebrating Independence Day on the 4th, celebrate Canada Day on the 1st. July 1st was the date my little sister and I flew into Deer Lake, Ontario. What have we been doing the last few days? Walking the beach sometimes. Enjoying the sunsets …

Mom and Sons

June 27, 2017

I love these photos of Mom beside her tall, muscular sons. They do grow up, don’t they? And because I love them, I’ll throw in a few other photos from our Sunday afternoon drive. Last week was summer Bible school at our church, packed full with teaching wiggly little human beings about Jesus and all the preparation which that entails. This week, Elizabeth and I …

A Letter to You

June 20, 2017

Lucinda Miller - Anything But Simple from Jonny Stoll on Vimeo.

Dear World, You look so big and overwhelming to me right now. Some days I feel like I sit at the very top of you with power to grab and swing you by your tail, toss you over my shoulder, and ride. Other days I just want to sit very small, cold, and white in a corner, like a ghost, and say nothing and do …
