Morning has Broken

And, I do mean broken! Wednesdays have traditionally been my longest and hardest days. Today was no exception; I started my long trek to the working world by leaving my person. I was oblivious about it until I had that terrible stab of panic and guilt [I leave it locked in my car], that perhaps I didn't lock the car, that the precocious squirrels in my yard stole it, that aliens took it, etc. I found the purse, then tried to eat breakfast, and sent a plate careening across the room like a flying saucer [I think I have a theme today]. Miraculously, there were only a few crumbs on the plate and it didn't break. Oh well.

I stand corrected, I think, on the location of the Peabody Museum. It is in Salem. I keep saying it is in Harvard, because 1000 years ago when I was 18, I visited both in one weekend on a whirlwind and memorable trip. I miss that area, and often sigh, "Ah, Boston!" when times are tough. For months,I wore somthing that came from that trip, a charm, a necklace, a pin, a hat or shoes. I bought doll from The House of Seven Gables and several from Salem and from the Witch Museum. I loved everything there, though I understand much has changeed. My mom and I had a good time following the "footprints" through the city to Paul Revere's house and other sites. At one point, we strayed, and ended up in the Combat Zone during the day, but we were none the worse for wear.

Years later, the curator of the Wenham Museum doll collection was a great help to me when I was researching my book. She was generous with both photos and information and I thank her.

Also, I want to thank the people following this blog. It is a labor of love, and the first step towards many dreams.

Below is some information on doll shows. Now that spring has indeed "sprung," some of us may want to venture forth. Looking up one link will in turn find other links, so go have an adventure!
