"Good To Be Alive"

Thanks to Dancin' Dave for the Pics!
Last nite was one of those nites...
You know the kind.
The damn near best kind.
We had an closing reception at Paris In Plantsville for a show called "The All Male Revue" which featured art from Paris Resident artists and friends.  I really only expected a few dozen people to come out.  And a few dozen did, and more did, and more did, and art was sold, puppets were drooled over, and everyone was talking shop.
I got to spend a Saturday nite surrounded by amazing art, amazing artists, people who love art, and people I love.
Someone once asked me "What does a puppeteer have to gain by being a resident artist at an art gallery?"
Back then I answered something about being able to have puppets in a gallery is a unique opportunity, I can work there, make films there, networking, etc...
Love.  That's what I gain by being there.
And again in life, I can't stop smiling.
(Tomorrow is my awesome girlfriend's birthday too!)
