Luci Shaw’s friendship, generosity, and writing has been an inspiration to Anne and me. Luci was the one who persuaded Madeleine L’Engle to write Walking on Water: Reflections on Art and Faith, a book that transformed my understanding of creativity and Christianity. And Luci herself has written several volumes of poetry, as well as The Crime of Living Cautiously, an inspiring book about living courageously, and a new memoir called Breath for the Bones.

I did a lot of work on both Through a Screen Darkly and Auralia’s Colors at Luci’s home beside Lake Whatcom. What an inspiring, spirit-filled place.

It’s good to see that The Washington Times (in the other Washington) saw fit to interview her about her new book.
