About This

Before we were teenagers we started a Barbie Club and named it some long silly name we can’t remember like “Rollerblading Magic Rainbow Hair Sparkle Fruity Fairydust Club”.  Acronym RMRHSFFC.  Totally immemorable and impractical.  But it was special to us.  It made us feel like we had our own “thing”.  A top secret world of tiny clothes and accessory making all for the good of our imaginations.

After a 20-year hiatus from Barbie Club we found each other again.  Through writing.

Erin’s Survivor Bunny concept came about out of desire and need to find a way to get into a regular writing habit so she could get all the ideas and thoughts out somewhere.  Survival through writing.  A means by which to keep her creative world blossoming.

Turns out I too needed that and this is what taking that dream and putting wings on it looks like.

(Do you see how this is just a more grown-up version of Barbie Club?)

We got tired of saying we want to do THIS or THAT.

So we decided to do THIS.

And perhaps it will lead to THAT.

But let’s just start with THIS, ok?

It’s a Scam

  Do you have any idea how many scams are running at any given time? Many. LOTS. I discovered this due to the fact that my current project is redistributing my 83-year-old mother-in-law’s accumulated possessions. This because her 563 storage units are costing her more than the value of the …

Books Revisited

A world without books. Real books. Those made of paper embedded with ink. I remember some saying that eventually everything will be electronic. Printed books will be gone. Defunct. What a horrifying thought. However, I doubt that all the books could be replaced completely by virtual reality. Perhaps there may …

A Poem: ‘Good Bye’

Good Bye   Met up with a friend today, A girl I knew from long ago. She’d always been a bright young thing, In her eyes a living glow.   We talked of times of energy, Accomplishments and useful deeds, Of hope and its accoutrements, Of dreams, what ifs, of …

You Need a Hug

***Dedicated to my friend Lisa who put me onto the importance of 20-second hugs***   International Hugging Day falls on the 21st of January. I know that’s a way off, but it’s always good to be prepared. Why does hugging need a special day anyway? Really, we should be rolling …

The Power of Naps

  For time untold, cats have had the right idea. Naps are good. It’s not lazy or unproductive; in fact, it could be the most productive thing you do all day! Napping can refresh the mind, boost creativity and intelligence, and improve health. Even big companies like Uber, Google, and …
