Both links lead you right back to this thread? confused

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!

Go to icklematt.wordpress.com and click on the pictures to the right smile

Now its time to focus on Performers Without Borders. No peace for the wicked. Or so they say.

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

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: https://www.performerswithoutborders.org.uk/

Please keep us informed on what you get up to.

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

opps.
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.
