gLove Story Dolls v2.0

In 2006, with the help of my daughter, I started collecting lost gloves, washing them, and turning them into dolls. Dubbed "gLove Story Dolls" by my mom, they feature button eyes and yarn hair. Over the years I continued to pick up a random glove here and there, but didn't have the same dedication to the project as I had early on.

This v2.0 will still...

2017 Reflections

As I reflect on 2017, I feel proud of my accomplishments, many instigated by the loss of my mother in February. Her legacy inspires me to transform the grief of her passing into the energy I need to focus my efforts to improve my life every day.  Her health had deteriorated quickly and her passing was not unexpected, I felt relief at the news, a memorial would be planned for May. Though I claimed to be dealing with the loss, my life was clearly unmanageable and a week after she passed I voluntarily entered rehabilitation treatment for substance abuse at...
