"Let us never forget that government is ourselves & not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President & senators & congressmen & government officials, but the VOTERS of this country." Franklin Delano Roosevelt, POTUS No. 32

As I write, Fall 2018 approaches. Besides a painting I've begun, I've been deep-delving, genealogy-wise, into my family. For instance, I found a furry-faced great-grandfather I never knew I had: JAMES JEFFERSON WOLFE, born in 1848, the year gold was discovered in California. If you're reading this and you've got older relatives, ask them about your own interesting ancestors. AND I've been making a DOLL. That means getting to sculpt with clay, painting, plus designing and making little outfits and furniture.


My doll-in-progress is built with Super Sculpey, polymer clay.
