field trip part two::bread and puppet

The barn/museum at Bread and Puppet last weekend. Haunting and magical and spiritual and inspiring all at once. I have no other words. 


  1. These are beautiful and moving, Karen.
    I had never heard of puppets of this kind until moving to our farm. That autumn, 2010, Viroqua hosted its first annual Harvest Day parade which included hundreds of townsfolk, adults and children, celebrating the abundance of our agrarian community. The parade lasts for less than a half hour then moves off to a hillside park for afternoon and evening events. The puppets are all hand made, worn, carried, pushed or pulled involving a different theme each year. It's moving, inspiring, humbling and loads of fun for all involved. And the town embraces the idea, allowing its Main St., the only road straight through town and a truck route that connects Madison to LaCrosse, to be closed to all traffic for the event.
    Take more field trips, Karen. I so enjoy going along with you.
