Slowly, I've been going through boxes of mementos from my childhood. I had some excellent babysitters in my day. One, in particular, shared old Ken and Barbie dolls from her childhood. We would create forts and houses (out of books) to play out the stories in our heads. I still remember one that I created under our dining room table - it had many imaginary floors.
Anyways......this fabulous Ken doll was from her collection. Ken has said many terribly interesting things, gone to lots of cool places and had lots of good and bad relationships with Barbie. Ken's been stuck in a box for a long time. I think he was happy to get out for this portrait session. I don't have the heart to put him back in the box, yet.
