Rebecca in 2010

In October 2000, Rebecca arrived in a wooden crate from California, initiating what was for me a new life surrounded by life-size dolls.

Rebecca is a Realdoll created at the turn of the century by Matt and his team at Abyss Creations. Several observers have mentioned that, even in flat photos such as this (if you look away slightly) she breathes. And was that a sigh?

Fields of barley, fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
As you lie in fields of gold.

— From the lyrics of Fields of Gold by Katie Melua, 2017, modified from the original by Sting, 1993

That modified song by Katie Melua, who is also a hang glider pilot incidentally, reminds me that none of us — organic or silicone rubber — lasts forever.
