My name is Lynna Goldhar Smith. Welcome to my blog–named after Jack Kerouac’s famous and much quoted BELIEF & TECHNIQUE FOR MODERN PROSE This is a place where I share my reflections on Writing, Painting and Performance and also thoughts about my own stumbling and side-tracked artist path-and how I stay on it even when it seems that the road is too steep or too difficult. I also post my paintings and art journal pages because from time to time I meet people who want to see what I paint. I am a multi-disciplinary theatre artist of mixed ancestral heritage, living in the vibrant and colourful Commercial Drive Community in East Vancouver Canada.I am a Mother of three talented young adults and a grandmother of an amazing eight year old. I divide my creative life between my theatre practice, and my visual art practice. I also work in the community as a cultural worker, creative art therapist and teacher who tries to bring art and theatre to where it can make a difference. I hope you will be a frequent visitor and keep in touch.
