Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Puppetry folks wearing silly things


Let's just say, what you may be, Mathieu, when you dress the role, is comic
relief to others who are so fashion concious that they couldn't do anything
else even if they tried. But secretly, they want the frog hat. I have done
similar things as well. Perhaps that is why I also love being a clown. I
think it shows wholesomeness and pride in what you do. I am always the one
that wears the silly hat or other at school. And it is ok.....my kids don't
look at fashion. 

Every year on Dr. Seuss' birthday I don my hat, tie, and tail to wear.

Keep being who you are. And keep writing you know who even if she is slow to
respond.
