But somehow, there was one particular entry that kept coming to me, the visual, poetic description unfolding in my mind, and I chose that idea as the winning entry. The piece is now finally finished and she will travel to her new home tomorrow. I did end up making a few changes to the original post I realize, but I hope the main feeling of the doll has remained in tact.
