Barbie Diaries 2004 (excerpts from my diary, dramatized by ME.) 2004: I find out Ken has broken up with me (no, He never told me...I read it in the New York Times!) I have a bad period, doing a stint of rehab at the Salvation Army toy bin, then get taken home by a man/artist(?) who likes to play with dollies. I try to make sense of my life, get my first bath in over a year, re-enter the dating game (with disasterous results) and try and pull my life together as a middle aged (but still good looking if you ignore the hair, which I am working on) fashion icon whose best days seem to be behind me.

WOW! Who would have thought that, at the age of 62 I would have found something that inspires me so much? And, as a double whammy, that it would involve playing with Barbie dolls, blows me away. All of my life I searched for something to create or produce that would make me feel fulfilled. Well, I produced three children, two boys (now 31 and 41) and a daughter (now 34) and they produced 3 children so far. That fulfills me and now they are grown and on their own. Somewhere along the line I realized that ME, SEARCHING for the thing that I could create was the wrong way to go about it.
Heres a wonderrful video in this years show that was made with a keen critical eye of POP culture
