Most of you who are close to me know the last 6 months of my life, have been extreme. I have had one focus in which all my energy, time & decisions had been made to assist another being through their toughest journey – illness to recovery. I can finally say we have made it over the waterfall and now enjoyed re-building moments of simplicity and health.

It been a while since my last post but travel, family, holidays, work have moved at an exceptional pace leaving no time to update a blog. This post is going to be about a team of artist to whom get an absolute standing ovation from my friends and I- War Horse shown at Proctors in Schenectady, NY-
Wow!~ I can’t say enough about how good this production was. I and my not so willing to go to the theater companions, were entertained the entire time. So much so that I didn’t even notice the time fly by.
The mechanics of the puppets were phenomenal.the theater was full and yet not a sound from the audience, as the motions of the horses were so exact you could easily say they were actual horses. The puppets captured your heart with ears that indicated emotion, skin that quivered with a pat of an actor’s hand, breath that held life. The puppets captured the in the moment act of life with the harmony of working with the other actors. The lighting offered drama intrigue and tons of emotional stimuli for the viewer’s response. There’s an odd shaped film screen that plays an artsy background using minimal color, which also really worked to enhance the experience. The Actors worked with passion expression and tons of energy! The level of artistic integrity, physical strength this performance commanded from each and every participant amazed and full kept me and my friends attention.
In the close a standing ovation – if you haven’t seen this production it is a must for all ages. I dint post pictures because I don’t know the rules but you can see allot on Joie and his supporting puppets, makers and the actors on YouTube.
