If you are in Atlanta, you should check out what the Center for Puppetry Arts has planned for today. It’s pretty spiffy. And you’re welcome.
There are things happening all over the United States today at various venues. Check around because there is some cool stuff going on.
As many of you know puppetry is as much part of my being as breathing. It just is. I started playing with puppets at a young age and building them when I was older. It is my calling.
I started showing at Art Shows with puppets, met my husband because of a puppet, made a lot of friends because of puppets, and had some really cool adventures because of puppets.
I have worked to educate people about puppets and puppet building. I have taught puppet workshops. I have always been willing to share information about how I do what I do. I take personal pride in that I have gotten teaching someone the basics of a hand and rod puppet to about half an hour.
I am a proud puppeteer and wear my red fleece heart on my sleeve.
I encourage each and every one of you to go out and have some puppet fun today. Even if that is watching Muppet Show sketches on YouTube.
I am so very grateful for puppetry.
