Subscribe to Lynda’s newsletter

My newsletter is more of a generalized, overall update on what I like to call “The 5 Whats”. Rather than just another one of those marketing newsletters that are really little more than a pitch for you to buy something, my newsletters are more of a way to maintain something that’s really important to me – a relationship with my readers. It’s one small way for me to give readers a little more of my

I Make My Own

I never knew how easy and delicious it was to make your own almond milk. So much cheaper than in the stores and I control the amount of sugar. It’s literally 1 cup of raw almonds soaked overnight and then 4 cups of filtered water, blended on high in the Vitamix for 1 minute and then squeezed through a cotton bag (I bought mine on Amazon just look up “almond milk bag”). Then I stick

New Year, New Goals

  Some places are sacred. Forests are one of them. There are certain places we go where the ground feels somehow sacred. The space feels deep and the air is tinged with heaviness. That’s how I feel when I enter the forest, when I walk amongst the moss-covered giants that line the forest floor.

The Soundtrack of Our Lives

A sign that used to hang in my studio said “Music is what feelings sound like” and for a lot of us, this is true. It has a way of sneaking inside our lives and defining the curves of our emotional landscape. Music is tied to emotion and connected to memories. You can thank dopamine for this – the same chemical transmitter in our bodies that makes sex feel great and riding a motorcycle an

Of Revolution and Reinvention

I spent a week in Mexico recently. The funny thing about being an American in a foreign country is that you come to feel, quite honestly, like you could lose yourself. If you could just dress like a local and speak the language, you could walk into town, disappear into the crowd, and no one would ever know. Unfortunately for me, being a pale shade of Northern European and making inevitable cultural faux pas often

Life in the Friction Zone

Ah, the ‘friction zone’ – that illusive sweet spot between the clutch and the throttle, your left and your right hand, smack dab in the middle of stalling the bike and keeping it upright. Instructors call this “the friction zone” and it’s similar to learning to drive a car with a manual transmission, except the clutch, gas, and shift control are in different places. I know some of you have been riding since you were

Remember Your First Time?

Remember the very first time you sat on a bike? You wrapped your knees around the tank and felt its girth, then grabbed onto the handlebars, lifted it off the kickstand and sensed its weight shifting underneath you. You started it up, then felt the sheer terror of its power rumbling through your bones and lighting your blood on fire. In the beginning it was all fits and stalls and a few big thrills mixed

What If? (Thoughts on an Interconnected Life)

What if… Freedom meant truth. Truth meant contentment. Contentment allowed sleep. Sleep meant rest. Rest meant communion. Communion meant intimacy. Intimacy meant peace. Peace meant balance. Balance meant growth. Growth meant life. Life meant light. Light meant everything… What if…?   – Lynda Meyers, 2011   This is is a series of thoughts I wrote back in 2011. It’s interesting, looking back, reading back your own thoughts and trying to remember where you were at

My Brand Is Human

I keep thinking back over my years of blogging, trying to recapture some of the vigor with which I used to send my words out into the digital stratosphere. Back in 2006, when I first started blogging, I never combed the internet looking for relevant tidbits to comment on or build a blog post around, I just lived life and tried to engage with my kids, and I blogged my way through, trying to understand

Question of the Day: What’s The Best Thing About Being A Writer?

I think it was Flannery O’Connor who said: “I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.” I feel a lot the same way. I’ve journaled ever since I can remember, and whenever the world gets confusing or I don’t know how I’m feeling, that’s what I do. Early on, these were little more than letters to God as I understood them. As I understood *him*. Somehow, by the

Letters From The Ledge – The Unpublished Entries

This journal entry never made it into the finished manuscript for Letters From The Ledge: “There he is again – right on schedule. It must be a ritual or something. I don’t think he can see me, even with the glow of my light-up pen on the page. It’s strange to wonder what he must be thinking about up there… I mean, we see the same stars, right? Maybe not. Maybe my blue is his

It takes a village. And some hobbits. – Thoughts on being a grandma

This little slice of heaven was born last week. I’m not sure what I thought it would be like before it happened, but I sure have a few thoughts to share after the fact. Let me explain. I mean, on the one hand, being a grandma doesn’t actually feel a whole lot different than not being a grandma. Kind of like when you have a birthday. From one day to the next the number might change,

Lions and Tigers and… Again? Really?

I’m about to tell you a story that you may have heard before. In fact, you may have heard me tell a similar story just bear-ly a year ago.  No, that’s not a typo. Yes, I saw another bear. But I didn’t just see it –  it saw me too! Up close. Personal. Way more personal than I wanted to be, anyway. I know lots of people have seen bears. I just happen to have

Be Fearless

I haven’t been doing this lately. I tend to get lost on my journey.  The road twists and turns and I follow it without really looking sometimes. It’s hard to stay on the path, but the farther you stray more you realize how cold your heart has become,  and how much  you long for the warmth of the passion and the fire you once had. It’s not enough to say you want to do it.
