While Walking the Dog?

Pacifica’s Lynn Ruth Miller of Pacifica is a tireless bundle of energy who is constantly exhibiting her paintings, doing book readings, or hosting special community events. Whether you see her at the Rotary Club’s Dog Contest, or telling her stories before library audiences, Lynn Ruth’s joie de vivre rubs off on all around her. She proves through example that it’s never too late to pursue your creative dreams. Indeed she is an inspiration to everyone with her can-do attitude and boundless spirit.

Her first book, THOUGHTS WHILE WALKING THE DOG, published by excentric press in 2001 is a collection of many of her Pacifica Tribune columns. These heart-warming, slice-of-life stories about her childhood and adolescence growing up in a Jewish household in Toledo, Ohio chronicle the pitfalls of life in the 1940s and 1950s with pathos and humor.

This new collection, MORE THOUGHTS WHILE WALKING THE DOG, continues her trademark storytelling style, capturing the joys and heartaches of life, stories that are universal in their insight and appeal.

Dog lovers will enjoy her tales of growing up with an assortment of canine friends, holding neighborhood parades on holidays or family picnics in the park. There are equally charming stories that deal her life growing up in a first-generation American ethnic family with its cast of eccentric family members and friends.

Travel back in time with Lynn Ruth as she relays accounts of her Romanian grandmother’s life as a young bride, and later when little Lynnie Root was the apple of her grandmother’s eye. Experience Lynn Ruth’s humorous sagas of coping with adolescence in the 1950s, her schoolgirl crushes, her struggles to deal with an overbearing mother, and her later successes and discoveries as an elementary school teacher.

Part autobiographical, part whimsical, Lynn Ruth Miller ’s original collection of story vignettes hearken back to early Americana when oral histories told at your grandmother’s knee provided the basis for life’s greatest lessons.

"I try to be a Maggie whenever I can." This is one of the sentences in this glorious collection of personal essays which will stay with the reader forever. To find out what it means to be a Maggie, sit down, pour yourself a cup of tea, and prepare to imbibe this wonderful collection of sometimes hilarious, sometimes sad, and always evocative stories culled from the event-filled life of the marvelously eccentric Lynn Ruth Miller. Each story is headed by, or ends with a quote. My favorite is from Eric Hoffer: "We're made kind by being kind." The reader senses that this is Lynn Ruth Miller's driving philosophy of life and certainly the author's humanity is evident in each of the quirky tales in "More Thoughts While Walking the Dog." Buy this book as a gift for friends--it's a reading experience they'll treasure.
