I kinda just realized I only have 3 days of shows left as a full-time marionette puppeteer. While I do love what I do, it’s still a job, with all that entails. But it is a job where I still smile when people ask me what I do, even after almost 6 years. And knowing that in a city of 8.5 million people, I am one of fewer than 10 people who do this job full-time has always been magical to me.
So, sure, I’m ready to move on to the next adventure, but I’m also very sad to be saying goodbye.
