Jim Henson's birthday is today. He would have been seventy-four. He may have left us, but his beautiful creations are still bringing joy us the world around. In an almost Monty Python-esque way his way out of any sketch was to throw chickens and penguins into the air. Yet at the same time these characters carry a lot of weight. It is unbelievable to see how poignant these small pieces of fabric, plastic, and feathers can be.
Uhm, excuse me, I think I have something in my eye. This song gets me every time!
