Mishap of Fate


This image is another from the Doll Series I created in the late 90's. This image hides a very eerie tale that happened with this particular doll. This pin doll was the first doll we bought for our son when he was born and fighting for his premature existence in the Neonatal ICU. His doll's name was Bear-Bear and Josh took it EVERYWHERE. He and Bear-Bear were always together during those early years and toddler years. When Josh was about 4 he was at his daycare providers house (Rosie) with Bear-Bear in tow and Rosie's dog ripped Bear-Bears left arm off. Later, that same day, Josh is standing on the piano bench at Rosie's and falls off, breaking his left arm. Coincidence or fate?

That definitely sounds like more than a coincidence. Is Bear-Bear still around?

I certainly hope you have been VERY careful with Bear-Bear since then!

Yes Bear-Bear is still around somewhere. I'll have to ask Josh.

No way! That is so freaky. Yeah, I couldn't answer that one. Jeez.
