Welcome to this week’s Open Book Blog Hop from Stevie Turner. Here’s her prompt. “They’re making an action figure of you. Describe the toy and accessories. (Do you have a catch phrase? Favourite items, clothes, hair style?)
My profile picture above should give you some idea of what my action figure would look like. It would have the same brown hair and brown eyes and be wearing the same red turtleneck with accompanying scarf, the color of which I’m not sure. I don’t remember what color pants I was wearing when that photo was taken, but most likely, I would be wearing black pants with a red turtleneck and black shoes and white socks.
My most important accessory would be a folding white cane, which I use most of the time when walking in public. Oh, I almost forgot about the mask. Made of cotton, it’s blue on the inside and with a blue and white print pattern on the outside.
I would also have a backpack which would include water shoes, a towel, and other items I’d need for my water exercise classes at the YMCA. A neck pouch would hold my phone, Kleenex, and other items I’d need when just taking a walk or in situations when I don’t need a lot of stuff handy. There would also be a fanny pack, holding a billfold, coin purse, and such items for shopping and other excursions. Last, but not least, I recently ordered a shoulder bag in which I’ll carry my Braille display, water bottle, and other things I’ll need when attending in-person writing workshops.

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
