  1. If God had created us, not out of clay, but with Play-Doh, we’d all be born with that distinctive musky vanilla/cherry-like smell, and the first thing a mother would do when her baby arrived would be to hold it close to her nose and breathe in. Ahh, fresh baby!

  2. spooky – and I am reminded of one old doll I inherited from my mother when I was about 5, similar to the ones you show, cheeks not quite as puffy, with a knob on the crown of the head where you could turn her face from crying to smiling or vice versa. I remember a feeling like – creepy doll. (I did have a couple more modern ones). Can’t really relate to the quote you add.

    • Athena’s symbol, too, is the owl.

      • Greek goddess of wisdom, daughter of Zeus, breathed life into the clay, myths say. 🙂

  3. After reading your wonderful post, CES, I think that my poems must be my paper dolls.
    Once again, the artwork is stunning (though some were a bit disturbing, too), the quotes right on (I really liked the Rachel Cusk quote) and of course the poems were thought provoking. I always look forward to your posts.

    • Thank you very much for your thoughtful and perspicacious comments, LuAnne. Rachel Cusk’s observation is the fulcrum on which this creation myth was balanced. Btw, I think your poems are living dolls. .:)
