Thanks for sharing this. Beautiful on many levels. Love Hobey’s understanding of the varieties of intelligence — “Their genius is their hands.” And that signed poster of Bil Baird, Burr Tillstrom, and Jim Henson!

That was incredibly beautiful and inspiring. An individual in a workshop with the most basic of tools making magic amidst nature. Live really doesn't get better than that.
