This essay is your best yet to me, Anne. As a writer,I always pay attention to what lies in the white space between the words, for often what is missing is more important than what is said. But here, you've looked at the shadowy spaces between the thoughts, and between you and your relationship with pain personified into form, sought and found your truth, and transformed it. Beautiful.

I'm so glad you shared these lessons Anne. I am confident that it will speak to many.


Hi Anne, I just came across your blog and was particularly moved by this post. I can relate to so much of it, although I haven't made a doll, yet, but I want to! So it said a lot... Thank you. You write so beautifully and I love your dolls. Very inspirational!

Hi Maureen, thanks for visiting my blog and for your thoughtful response. I do hope you'll pursue your desire to create a doll. Best wishes to you as you go along.
