Traveling at the Speed of Canoe

Thursday, January 24th 2019


Blood Moon Eclipse on 1/19/2019:  1) Baloney, 2)  North Carolina (by Steve Langley), 3)  Atlanta (by me) and 4)  somewhere on Africa.


As I write, I am in Boston (Cambridge MA), between conferences, needing to unpack from Atlanta last weekend so I can go back to Atlanta this weekend.

I once heard a proverb about how the soul travels at the speed of canoe.  The older I get, the more sensitive I become to peregrinations through the sky.

I also believe in pulling your raft over to the side of the rapids once in a while to look at where you’ve been, and where you’re going.

To that end, above is the Blood Moon Eclipse from last Saturday night, and below is:

  1. that same moon glinting off the airplane wing as we take off from Atlanta
  2. that same wing arriving 3 hours later in New York City
  3. my team mate Joe entertaining me in the front row of the World Debut of Joe’s Skway Barf Bag Puppet Theatre!!!
  4. Mystifying architectural structures in NYC
  5. Clowns freezing on the shuttle in arctic weather
  6. Me again in the front row seat for Feat of Joy‘s puppet theatre World Debut!


Go figure our clown team would be so inspired with puppetry after three spectacular days in Meeting of the Noses at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta.

Next up:  Groundhog Juggling Festival with the Flam.

So much packed into this otherwise “slow” time of year, ack!!
