Questions for Cindy


Updated: Cindy's lyrical answers.

1. Do you ever have sudden and almost uncontrollable urges to frame a situation with words? How do you keep those thoughts until you are able to get them recorded?

2. You paint such lovely pictures with words, I am curious, do you have other creative outlets for your "vision?"

3. Which writers have moved you, inspired you, the most in your life?

4. You say on your profile that you are interested in incarnation. Tell me more.

5. If you could change one thing about Anne Lamott, what would it be? *

* Note that I would change nothing about Anne. However, sometimes there are things about our favorite writers that if we could alter even slightly, we would, so I thought I would ask.

Rae, I have a question for you and Cindylou about a writer I know from Columbia, MO who has written a book called The Jordan Tracks. It is set in California, MO during the Viet Nam era and a father's crisis of faith while his son is over there. The author is Steven Wise. He is looking for bloggers to read and give the book a little promo. Are you interested?
I can see Cindy where the topic could be tough for you to read at this point. Could either be a good thing to read or not. Let me know if you'd like to review it too.
And you didn't ask me but I don't know that I'd change anything about Anne Lamott. I don't always agree with her, but she gets to the heart of the matter and challenges me to think more deeply about how I live out my faith. At times I think she is totally whacked and that's ok. She's in Denver this week but it was sold out long ago.

I realize this question wasn't directed to me, but since I'm a big fan of Ms. Lamott, I can't resist answering it. The only thing I'd change about her would be her address. Texas could use a writer like her!

Ben--I've emailed you, but the answer is yes, definitely! :)
