Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination.
In short, Cosmic Confab is a periodical magazine cover, or issue, utilizing 1:6 scale/fashion dolls as a medium & model to showcase various aspects of the human condition, from the absurd to the mildly profound.
With the philosophy of ‘Brevity is the essence of wit,’ Cosmic Confab produces a fictional lifestyle, cover-only glossy magazine serving up ‘visual cue cards,’ reminders, PSA’s, or just mental fluff. We use topics, tools and mediums that are interesting and creatively inspiring to us: Barbie and other play-, 1:6, 12″, fashion or remotely similar scale effigies, psychology, spirituality, mindfulness (In all the surprising and eclectic incarnations it may take), photography, obscure and not-so-obscure literary/pop/movie/historic/personal/art/music and other references, self-help, self-improvement, satire, and, hopefully, some humor.
It’s a journey, mimicking all the ups and downs of life, but in plastic form. Think: ‘Dolls & Leisure,’ ‘Barbies & Ammo,’ ‘Dolls Illustrated,’ ‘Doll Times,’ ‘Playbarbie,’ ‘Good Dollkeeping,’ and every other lifestyle magazine play on words you can think of.
The only thing you have control over is YOU – Your thoughts and your actions. IT’S YOUR JOY OR YOUR PAIN and it’s entirely up to you whether you bask, or wallow, in life.
As cliche as it may sound, as trite as it may look, as fusty as it may smell, as vapid as it may feel, and as stale as it may taste…
HAPPINESS IS A WAY OF TRAVEL, NOT A DESTINATION.
So, try to make it a sweet Winnebago.
