I've always gotten sick on Christmas Eve, Always the same thing earache, and stomach pains. I thought it came from excitement of Christmas and opening gifts the next morning. This particular Christmas I was excited, I couldn't wait to see what baby Santa sent me to lavish love on.
I remember now as if it were yesterday, the moment my father place that box in my hands. He smiled and winked at me. I knew it was my baby, it had to be cuz my father winked at me. I opened that box, and my heart soared with love for the baby within that box. She was a Vogue Doll, not that I knew what that meant back then. She was perfect! She wore a blue dress with white poka-dots. Her hair was blonde and short, and she had a fishnet over her whole face and hair. I guess it was to hold it in place. She had dimples and long lashes, white bloomers and shoes and socks. I was in awe of how pretty she was. Ya could feed her a bottle and she would wet her diapers ya put on her. I NEVER fed her real water, just a pretend bottle. I called her Ginny, didn't know that was the name on the box.
(This is the closest picture I could find of her.)

~WHO are YOU?~
My friend KatieLynn, posted a really good question on her blog here...
Please take a moment to visit her, tell her Poe sentcha. And answer this question for her. ~Thanks~
So have ya ever wondered, Who ya truly are? I mean KatieLynn asked a question that I believe alot of us don't know. It's easy to say ya a Mother, Father, Friend, etc... But do ya KNOW WHO YOU ARE? Try to answer it truthfully without adding the usual typical as KatieKal (my nickname for her) Says...
"under the weight of what the world has put upon you"
WE need to decide WHO WE ARE! Don't just fall into the comfort of what others THINK you are, truly KNOW for YOURSELF! I guess my growing up the way I did, I had plenty of time to reflect on who I was.
Was I this child who was the following?...
Stupid, Unwanted, Failure, *itch, Slut, *astard child, sexually abused,Trash, and so many other names drilled into my head.
There was NO WAY I was any of those things. I didn't feel them deep inside of me. What I did feel, was never wanting anyone to ever feel like I did when those words were spoken. I knew I was a child who could use her words to build others up, not tear them down. I was a child who found her voice in Poetry, and used it to express herself. A child who could use paint,oil pastels and such to pour out her emotions, and have it reflect the beauty that would mask the ugliness of an abused childhood.
So here is WHO I AM....
I am a wandering soul who delights in making others smile.
A constant reminder to those who have suffered in childhood, That we are not our past. We can make our mark upon this earth, Shining brightly to show the way to those who follow behind us.
A voice for those who have none.
I am an Artist, A Poet, A Dreamer, A Believer, A Wisher.
I am She Who Wanders
I am Poetic Dreams
I am all of this and ever so much more!
I will continue to evolve, grow and change.
And at the end of my life,when I take my last breath upon this earth.
I will have known I was all of the BEST OF ME!

It's also known for where George Washington bathed.
There's a place where ya can actually fill water jugs to take this wonderful water home with you.
I lived this way for 10 years. I couldn't figure out what was wrong. I went to the doctors, and I was told constantly it was IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) no tests, just a general that's it live with it kind of diagnosis.

Feel free to join in on the fun. I can say this I've learned so much about various artists through Gary. He's an amazing guy whose talents go unnoticed. Our latest Challenge was Rauschenberg, I have made two pieces since then. In fact I've been looking at trash in a whole new light. Here are the two pieces I've done for Gary.
I did get a chance to have her add my name to a drawing she was doing. The winner would receive her Painted "Green Man" What shocked me was I won! I was so excited!!!! I usually don't win things. But when I do I get over excited about it. Will post a pic of my art when it arrives.

What makes me upset is how people who haven't a clue as to the whole situation, can judge others on what this Ning Leader feeds them. That makes ya a follower being led blindly like a sheep to the slaughter. Why not seek the people out and ask them personally what happened? Why do ya insist on insulting and harrassing the other person?

Papa took Lil Love and the family out for her "pancakes" He does this every Saturday morning and Lil Love enjoys it immensely. When they left to come home Da took Lil Love to go pick out her plates for the party. She chose her favorite Curious George. She then found a lil stuffed Curious George and picked him off the shelf and hugged him. She then placed him back on the shelf after she showed Ma & Da. She started to walk away when her Da told her she could have him. Lil Love ran backed to him and hugged him tight and kissed him. She thanked her Ma & Da. When they told me this story I told them NO two year old EVER does that. Ya usually the one to take the item and put it back while they scream. Lol
