Welcome Seeker

Do you like stories? If Yes: Congratulations! You’re in the right place.
If No: Congratulations! You’re still in the right place because stories are good for you, like vegetables, but much more yummy. My name is Lydia Sherrer, and I’m a storyteller. I’m here to make you laugh and cry, to feel joy and sorrow, to inspire you to reach for the stars and remind you we’re all just human…

I write stories to help us better understand ourselves and the world around us, so we can become better people, and can act to make the world a better place. I’m here to change the world one story, and one person, at a time.

  1. “…. just me standing alone in a big empty room, listening to my voice echo….”

    I love that! I know just what you mean! I feel like that at times… a feeling most writers have, I suspect.

    I like the layout here… crisp and clean. I have seen some blogs that were virtually unreadable (who thinks pink text on red background works well?), but you’ve designed this very well.

    • Lydia: Congratulations! From the vantage point of 84 years I am watching you spread your wings. I think of you in that huge, beautiful anti-bellum house we visited, reading your creation aloud and hoping the world will answer. I strongly suspect it will. I must tell you I was past thirty before I manifested the self assurance and calm reaching out to the world that I detected in your opening salvo. At this point I feel my heart cannot stand any more life stories; my mind cannot store any more truth, and there is no room in my whole being for any more wonder. But this life is beautiful, dangerous and deeply meaningful and I am so glad you recognize that at a young age. Blessings and good luck (I find it helps to have an abundance of both). Elaine Akin

      • Thank you so much for your kind words Elaine! It was wonderful having you all out at my house for our meeting, and you all have truly inspired me and given me a place where I could first start to dream, and first think that I could actually be something more! Thank you for that. Many blessings to you, and please feel free to contact me further if you have any suggestions or wisdom that comes to mind that may be helpful to me, and others here who read this blog!

  2. I’ve recently started a web site, the information you offer on this website has helped me greatly. Thank you for all of your time & work. “The only winner in the War of 1812 was Tchaikovsky” by Solomon Short.

    • I’m so glad it has helped, I’ll be posting weekly, so feel free to check back for more updates on writing and blogging.

  3. Lydia:
    So glad to see you being creative in this way. And congratulations on your wedding! Cate (our granddaughter) was married last year. You have inspired me to at least have a try at writing again. There’s a book in me I want to write before the Lord calls me home.
    Evelyn Thibaudeau

    • Hello Evelyn!! I hope you and your family are doing well, and congrats for Cate! I’m so glad you’ve found inspiration in my blog, that’s exactly what its there for :). Please let me know if you have any questions about writing that I might help with, I can even get you connected with some good writing groups on facebook if you’re interested. I’ll be posting many more good tidbits about writing in the months/years to come, sharing what I learn as I learn it! God bless.

  4. Thanks for sharing you life stories and writings. I have always found you a wonderfully interesting individual

    Much love and blessings
    Rita

    • Thanks so much Rita, I look forward to sharing much more in the future. I first stories are getting published this spring, so definitely subscribe or keep an eye on the blog to see when they’ll be available! Many blessings to you 🙂

  5. Lovely introduction to your blog. Thanks for your message on twitter. Would you like to check out my blog too? I’d love it if you did 🙂
