"" 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?

Yes, I have googled my name and I was a little surprised at how much info was out there.

Adele said...

I certainly have. As you well know, Adele is not a common name in the first place...but is seems there was one before me. I do know she was from California. Seems a bit on the spooky side if you ask me.

Adele Etherton (1929-1946)

On other name...my grand daughter's name is Jacqueline Renee Bowser...she is 11 in June. On facebook there is another Jacqueline Renee Bowser who lives in ohio and goes to college in Ohio. I did get to talk to her and there is no relation.

Okay, one more and I will quit.

My husband Devon Etherton joins facebook and we find another Devon Etherton. I wrote to say hello and introduce myself. Seems this Devon Etherton is a young woman who had just married a Michael Etherton..(another name of one of Devon's sons).
