Re-imaging my doll cabinet

Last November 2013, after I had concluded some painting and re-carpeting to my condo, it became necessary for me to rearrange my doll cabinet and thanks to Mom it was done very quickly and efficiently. All well and good but here is the thing: I have to re-image my doll cabinet, and why? Because my dolls have now been rearranged and I have to go in and learn where Mom has put each of them.

Not a problem for me, it just means that I have to learn where they are and then form a mental picture in my mind. I am very sure that the previous mental picture which I drew when I had functional vision now has to be re-drawn and I will be using my sense of touch to draw it. What this means is this: I need to erase the previous mental picture of my doll cabinet and replace it with a new one.

It could be looked at like this: A previous memory is now gone forever and will be replaced with a new one.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud, those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
