World Puppetry Day!

To say I love the art of puppetry is an understatement. 
It is my life.  My passion.  And at times, an obsession.
And not just the type of puppetry I do.  I love all kinds, and try my best to learn as much as I can about each one, see shows, films, etc. whenever I can.

It is an art form that has enriched my life. 
So how does one "celebrate" world puppetry day?
As a puppeteer and puppet maker I will definitely spend some time today working on my art.
And as a fan of puppets I will watch something...  New?  old?  I don't know yet.  

What can you do?  Seek out a local puppeteer and see if any shows are happening, go online and rent/download a film featuring puppets...  Hug a puppeteer and thank them for keeping this ancient art alive in these times...  Check out your local puppetry guild, and Puppeteers of America!
And I be a fool not to mention my own work here!  Want to help this puppeteer?  Check out the films I have worked on at VHX and at YouTube! 

And on a total other note...
Eleven years ago today Prince released one of his BEST albums, 3121.
I can't believe it was that long ago.  Right now the album is out of print, but easily found used online.  I heard it's getting re-released soon though!
