Happy 75th birthday Jim Henson!
How could I not, in the midst of doing a puppet course myself, wish this masterful puppeteer a happy birthday today?! Henson is and will continue to be a creative inspiration to so many including myself. The video above looks at the inspiration and making of the Google Doodle that is up today and tomorrow to honour Henson. Check it out. Head over to Google and play!
There is also an endearing letter from his son Brian on the Google blog describing him as, 'one of those rare parents who was always ready to play again'.
And while I am feeling a little sorry for myself after wondrously tripping in a ditch yesterday and badly spraining my ankle I hope you are all having a fun weekend filled with lots and lots of play. I would love to hear what mischief you are getting up to.
