{Inspiration} Kevin Clash

It's Friday... & being true to my 2012 self, I hunkered down with another good documentary tonight. Nothing like rounding out this week of "Muppet Love" with  Being Elmo. A friend on facebook recommended this documentary to me this week after seeing  my "Muppet or a Man" post. (Incidentally- we've been singing that song along with the whole Muppet Movie soundtrack non-stop for days.) I'm so glad she brought this film to my attention- as I'm not exactly sure how this one slipped by me.  Learning about Elmo creator, Kevin Clash's puppeteering journey, was exactly the kind of inspiration I needed to start the weekend. While it's true, I've always dreamed of working for Jim Henson, you don't need to be a puppeteer want-to-be, to love this movie. So, Being Elmo gets my "inspiration" pick of the week.  Happy Weekend!

    I loved that he was mentoring other young puppeteers too! I had the kleenex box out a few times. :) Yep, so inspiring... LOVED IT! (Yippee for Netflix!)
