Who is Dr Zee? Well, one answer is that
I'm a figment of Elsa's imagination.
But that's not telling anything.
It's like saying Tinkerbell is a fairy. What then?
Plus, so what if I'm a figment? Characters in novels are figments -
one may know more about them than a lot of the people in our lives.
fact, I think one of the reasons I loved reading as a child was because
of all the people I got a chance to know and be close to.
So who is this Dr Zee?
She's safe - trustworthy. She cares. She thinks a lot, feels a lot,
and figures things out a lot.
She's nicer than Elsa, more patient, more knowing. And she's there all
the time, any time -
while Elsa goes off to the Idea Emporium, Zee's
Cafe Cafe, Caro's Quest,
the creativity blog, and dozens of other
Background? She split off from Elsa a long time ago - she's one of those
Elsa almost became Dr Zee, but in the end continued
where she was already heading -
into college and university teaching,
and then back to her childhood quests -
creativity and performance.
Dr Zee always stayed around, after she came into being - and then finally
got a name
about a year ago, a name and a planned home of her own. It
fits that it's a virtual home,
as she is a real but virtual self. She's
happy to have the space she has. It suits her.
In thinking up Dr Zee's LoveLine, Elsa thought up a nice visible space
to the Dr Zee
part of herself. But Dr Zee actually has had space for
a long time,
but without a name of her own. For years one of Elsa's classes
- part of Elsa's everyday life -
has been Knowing the Inner Self. That's
been my space, Dr Zee's space.
So, Elsa. Elsa thinks and writes about a lot of things. She does web
stuff, writes songs,
writes idea pieces, writes Caro's Quest, performs.
Dr Zee keeps to the stuff that goes on inside people and between people.
So who is Dr Zee? One way of looking at me is as a self that almost made
this world, as Elsa's main self, but instead is part of everything
in Elsa's life,
and now has a home of her own.
Another question - because you may have noticed there is a Zee's Cafe
Cafe, and a Zee.
How does Dr Zee relate to Zee?
Zee is another alter ego, the one who went out into the performance world,
finally setting up a cafe for all kinds of performance people, including
herself. Zee is Elsa going back to some of her deepest roots - performance
and writing and art, the first things Elsa wanted to do with her life.
It was in 1999 that Zee came to be, as the everywoman who runs Zee's
(virtual) Cafe Cafe, where she herself performs and where she's made
a home for lots of other alternative musicians, spoken word people, folk
So much work was done. Two samples of Zee's Cafe Cafe were created, first
mainly alone, then with considerable support. But it's a big project.
Elsa needed more support and also (since there's been no funding) more
knowledge to do much of the design work on her own. Finally, when too
many other things happened, the cafe had to be put aside. But it was
never discarded. The dream never died. It's been waiting, so much ready
to go, so much more almost ready to go. And now, finally, it's slated
to be on the web January 7, 2007, a big part of Elsa's Creativity Emporium.
As for me, though I got my name much later in Elsa's life, I am getting
my space earlier.
I have to thank Zee for a lot - including my name. Most, without Zee
there might never have been the idea for a web project. As for my name,
part comes from Zee and part from Elsa. She's entitled to call herself
Dr, but doesn't - though some of her students call her Doc. So there
was her Dr title, just floating around unused, ready to be put to use.
For now, it's mine.
It's Elsa's sister's favorite picture of Elsa.

And one comment from Elsa:
Dr Zee can't take on answering lots of individual problems.
Like Dr Zee of the Idea Emporium, she explores problems and
considers ways to deal with them.
But she's no Dr Phil or Oprah, no Virginaia Satir.
She's one person, ready to point to other resources.
But maybe her explorations
are also yours.
And maybe what she comes up with is helpful to you.
She's also planning, for
early 2009, to have a weekly space on
Cafe, a virtual cafe which I'm setting up,
wth something different every virtual night.
