Support the Hunger Site

Are you stressed about your job, your kids, your relationships, your finances, your business, your retirement, finding work, your aging parents, paying off debt, your studies and exams?

Well, you could do worse than get your very own Guatemalan worry-no-more-doll from The Hunger Site. You place your tiny handmade doll under your pillow each night, tell her your worries, and by morning, presto-chango, she’s stolen them away…

Note that every dollar spent on The Hunger Site buys at least 25 cups of food for the needy.

Worry Dolls play a role in Quantum Entity trilogy (books available at http://www.brucemfirestone.com). Here is what my friend, Judy Murray, had to say about her experience with worry people:

“My husband Steve and I got our Worry People at a Christmas Party hosted by Prof Bruce in Dec 2011. We named them ‘Molly’ and ‘Miranda’. Molly is Steve’s, Miranda is mine. We don’t know anyone who has those names but for whatever reason, that is who they are. I recall that with our dolls, you aren’t supposed to change the names once you choose them…so they’re Molly and Miranda forever. The dolls really do work—I can’t believe it. Now some friends of ours are going through tough times and we need to get them Worry Dolls too,” Judy Murray, Ottawa, Canada, June 2012.

Here is an excerpt from Book 1 of the Quantum Entity trilogy. In it, Gillian Boys, outfitter in Belize, has this to say about Worry Dolls–

“Worry People are tiny folk art dolls mostly found in Guatemala Highland Maya culture. If you confess your troubles to your Worry Doll before you go to sleep each night, they’ll steal them away and you’ll sleep peacefully and completely.

“Our dolls come from San Juan del Obispo. They’re hand-made using all natural cotton fibres and textiles made in Guatemala. Your job is to find a coupla dolls that speak to you and to draw a face on each of them and give them a name. But once you have given them a name, it’s like ships, it’s bad luck to change them so be careful.

“We have three types of dyes for you to work with: tanine, vat dyes and dyes with mordent. We also have lots of non-run, non-NSM inks and different colored threads of various diameters to choose from so there you go…

“Any questions?”

“I have one,” says a pensive Nell. “Where do Worry Dolls take our fears after we tell them what’s going on?”

More worry doll stories–

Take a few minutes to pre-read the Foreword from Quantum Entity: http://www.eqjournal.org/?p=2932

Performance artist Nell takes physicist Damien Bell and friends to her second home on Ambergris Caye to celebrate Damien’s 23rd birthday. On Day 2, they find themselves at Marco Gonzalez, the site of Mayan ruins on the south end of the island. 

Towards the end of the afternoon, they’re all gathered about the craft hut for an announcement. The girls have covered up (they all went topless except for Dakota and her friends) for the second time today—they didn’t play Ultimate semi-nude and won’t be doing some type of craft that way either.

Gillian says: “We wanted everyone to take something away from today that will help you remember this day, this beautiful nation and these wonderful people for a long time to come. So Miss Nell and our team have brought baskets of Worry Dolls, enough for everyone to create one or two of their own.

“Anyone know what a worry doll is?”

No one did or at least no one wanted to put her or his knowledge of the subject up against a local like Gillian Boys.

“Worry People are tiny folk art dolls mostly found in Guatemala Highland Maya culture. If you confess your troubles to your Worry Doll before you go to sleep each night, they’ll steal them away and you’ll sleep peacefully and completely.

Now you need to know that you don’t pick out your Doll; she picks you out. Next, you need to name her but, like ships, you have to be careful about this because, once you have named her, you can’t change it because it’s bad luck.
