...time for...





Nope! Closed for Pandemic!



Sherwood managed to stay open for three weekends.

By the fourth weekend they were shut down.





The Dollmaker and Company had already attended on Opening Sunday-


right, so... these pictures were taken just before

the excrement hit the fan....


...just a buoyant  Dollmaker and her friends-

having a beverage and listening to good music

Huzzah with perhaps a little

hanky-panky going on there in the back row?

Love was in the air, one supposes..

this was all before.... "social distancing"...

a Tyme not so long ago.. when droll Townspeople blithely gathered...

lined up sort of shoulder to shoulder

 to welcome M'Lord and M'Lady into some other Century...

 ha. ...little did they know...

that in a few short weeks those noble sentiments would be silenced...

a Scourge would descende upon the Lande,

this Stage would be Barren

and they would all be home in their Pajamas

wondering WTF happened!









watching a poppy... rising...




yes indeed, people of Earth are rising to the challenge

embracing the fine distinction made between

"Night Pajamas and Day Pajamas"...





...and having gangs of fun in Puerto Backyarda...




And they're OFF!

Racing to get over the Edge...

One finds that Snails are far more competitive

than, say, worms or slugs... but caterpillars can be good racers...

  and Beetles, although unpredictable and directionally challenged...




yup- things just got strange...


really did happen!








 Hey, woo-hoo! Social Distancing Can be Fun...

(for solitary rock collectors who love lonely beaches and spooky forests and

are uncomfortable around members of their own species..)


Collecting Rocks and Touching the Earth

is broad spectrum "Grounding"


but of course with the Dollmaker one must look for

the "Alternate Intention" or "Underlying Strategy"

in this case:

Smooth Rocks happen to make Great Doll Heads!!




and imperfectly shaped rocks have character as well...


As the Shaman Characters got more "headstrong"

they began to require properly sized custom-made magical charms...









Cutting knits and stretching them out... WAY out....

creates CURLS!





and it wasn't long before the Quest for attenuated fabric curls led the Dollmaker deeper

into the Realm of a "wavy yarn group" seriously known as the


a more or less cooperative Greenman Guy agrees to
model Wigs made of:


Pandemic Work Space...







Now then, the Dollmaker has begun washing her hands many times a day...

(because they are constantly covered with dirt from working in the garden!)


Transplanting Pumpkin Seedlings!


One Halloween Pumpkin had completely deteriorated! 

So, the Dollmaker was ambling by that spot one day

and saw hundreds of seeds sprouting!


She shoveled as many sprouts as she could into pots-

and two days later, they all had leaves!!

 Hundreds of baby pumpkin plants had to be transplanted into the ground!



Terracing and Gardening that whole Dirt-and-Fire-Debris "mountain" out back

proved to be quite an archeological Dig!

...tiny treasures popping out after being buried for a decade...



In fact, ready or not, Spring has Sprung!

 and we are swept right through into the Season of Sprouting...

...what could also be called: The Impinging... (Lawn Mowing is Well underway)

but you know how we always say:

 We Don't Have Time.

Well, we have been given back Time..

What a great gift, this Time is.


If we could relax into it...

we could use it to reflect upon

the uncanny Variety of Species sharing the planet with us:


"Oh please Brer Fox, whatever you do, please don't throw me into the briar patch!"





The Role of Toilet Paper in the Civilized World

~the Dollmaker holds forth on current events~


More than the End of the World at the Turn of the Century,

More than the End of the World predicted by the Mayan Calendar,

more than Tsunamis, Volcanoes, Wildfires, Tornadoes, Earthquakes, Sun Spots

Nuclear Meltdowns, Oil Spills, Oceans full of plastic, Climate Change 

and even more than the drastic and Sudden Recall

of seven million gallons of Bluebell Ice Cream...

this latest Catastrophe has served as

a Wake-Up Call...




To the Actual Priorities of Modern Man!

The Unprecedented Glomming of Toilet Paper

sent shockwaves throughout the Civilized World...

(and if people didn't hoard it before they sure will now!)


 For 200,000 years Mankind knew the "call of nature"

yet toilet paper has only been available for approximately 163 years...


 It took a Worldwide State of Emergency to expose this Improbable Defecation- uh- Revelation

that Toilet Paper ranks as the Number One (and Number Two) Item

that We the People of Earth feel we Cannot and Must Not live without!


Bronze Age, Iron Age, Toilet Paper Age.

And we need to Own it!

Lots of it!


We are One World! United through Our Common Systems of Elimination,

and heeding the Example of the past few weeks, Manufacturers would be well advised to

make sustainable Toilet Paper Production a Primary Concern

in the months and years ahead... for the sake of Civilization.


And please don't Waste time... This is a Fecal Matter!














Now then...

About Civilization...

 Anthropologist Margaret Mead was asked by a student

what she considered to be the first sign of civilization in a culture.

The student expected Mead to talk about

 fishhooks or clay pots or grinding stones.

But Mead said that the first sign of civilization in an ancient culture was a
femur (thighbone) that had been broken and then healed.

Mead explained that in the animal kingdom, if you break your leg, you die.

You cannot run from danger, get to the river for a drink or hunt for food.

You are meat for prowling beasts.

No animal survives a broken leg long enough for the bone to heal.

"A broken femur that has healed is evidence that someone has taken time to
stay with the one who fell, has bound up the wound, has carried the person
to safety and has tended the person through recovery.


Helping someone else through difficulty

is where civilization starts," Mead said.

and In the end, Time is all we have..

all we have ever had...
