Posted:I can't wait to read more about your experience. What a great project this is, and it must be so good for the spirits of those kids, to know that someone outside the walls cares, and is bringing a little bit of magic and joy to them. I really have a lot of admiration for you. I'm really interested to see how Performers Without Borders shapes up also.

hug and beerchug to you!

Posted:Matt, what you are doing is amazing, I am sooo impressed and moved. Maybe you want to join my circus for a wee while in the fall? It will be for the Burmese/Karen tribe children in the refugee camps up by the Thai border.

see www.dokbua.org, under the laughing for life section ... hug hug hug

Posted:I'd love to return to the Karen refugee camps in West Thailand and especially to work with your project. However this fall I'll be busy with my own project: http://www.performerswithoutborders.org.uk/

Please keep us informed on what you get up to.

Posted:I am laughing so hard, at how unconsciously synchronized my friend Glenna and I are, running in the same circles and hardly realizing it fully until just the last few months... I had not known you had already been involved! I just thought it would be your sort of thing, as indeed, it obviously is! wink Great! Were you involved in last year or the previous one?

I am moving next month to her home/space at Haad Tien and continuing ( with my own touch) various projects she initiated with the ""fairy dust"-- the circus being one of them. really looking forward to it. Sometime soonish I will pm you to pick your brain for advice and expereince!

smiles and best wishes

No I wasn't in Thailand with the circus. Sorry crossed wires there. I was just travelling in that area 6 years ago. I have met Sophie and Jacob who went with the circus.

Sounds like you have some interesting things to get on with.
