"" Writer's Wanderings: Who is Karen Robbins?

Who is Karen Robbins?

I have a Google alert set up for Karen Robbins. It is after all, my name and if someone is writing about me, I'd like to know what they are saying--especially if it's something good. The responses I get to Google's searches are often quite interesting and certainly unnerving at times. Like the time I discovered a Karen Robbins was under investigation for abusing a student. But others who share the name are doctors, lawyers, athletes, and yesterday, I discovered an artist.

It was an interesting turn of events since I had just finished speaking at a Ladies Banquet on Saturday and used the illustration of a glassblower whose artistry created a beautiful design of color inside a dish by using pieces of broken glass in the hot molten glass they were working with. The idea was that God takes the broken pieces of our life and creates a work of joy within us if we choose by faith to follow Him.

Karen Robbins and her husband Dana have a studio in New Mexico and from the pictures on their website, their artwork appears every bit as beautiful as the glasswork I recalled in my illustration. She was also an art education major in college. It was fun to find we had that in common. If we ever make it out that direction in our travels, I'd love to stop in at their workshop.

Have you ever Googled your name? Did you find any surprises?
