This week’s member inducted into The Oucast’s Bloghouse is a lady with truly a writer’s name, Linda Lee Lyberg of Charmed Chaos Blog.
Self-proclaimed “marcher to her own beat”, Linda was destined to be an artist.
“Of course you’re an artist. You come from a family of artists. I’m an artist, your grandmother was an artist, and so was your grandfather.” – Linda’s father.
With a family history in Vaudeville, it seemed inevitable that Linda would wander through life bearing a bard’s soul. Linda’s artistic outlet is through the written word; prose, poetry, lyric and song. Oh, and food.
“Destiny, fate, written in the stars. Writer, poet, artist, dreamer of possibilities. Ardent chef and lover of red wine. Savoring life, one tasty morsel and one luscious ruby-red filled glass at a time.
Then: Former lifelong and grounded career person. Lived for my career and the next goal achieved.
Now: I write, soaring on wings of a hopeful future, doing what I am most passionate about; living in the present and articulating my aha moments, my feelings, my wandering random thoughts in a way to touch the empty place in your heart, and fill it with emotions.
One of my deepest pleasures is seeing the food I create with love appreciated for its meaning and significance. And as such, another is knowing that I have touched a memory or feeling with my words. They, my food and my words are my offerings to any and all who will appreciate them. Enjoy my musings on life, love, and linguini as I venture into this journey within. A journey long overdue.” – Linda
Truly a poet soul if ever I came across one. Linda’s blog, complete with artistic and evocative title, Charmed Chaos, is a collection of pieces that optimize this artistic ‘old’ soul, and are accompanied by gentle images of colour and contrast. Beware though, like all artists, there are some twists and turns to be found in Linda’s blog… as one would expect from charmed chaos.
You may also feel Linda’s love of food in Charmed Chaos; her love of cooking and sharing food is worn on her sleeve… and appears frequently on her blog!
It is my pleasure to welcome a self-confessed outcast and old soul into our Bloghouse, and I dub Linda, a member of the Outcast’s Bloghouse and Destined Artist and Word Weaver.
“At last, a kiss, oh what sweet release!”- At Last, 1987 Linda Lee Lyberg
