Fabulous Jeff. Thanks so much for your deeply felt/thought responses. Yes to so much of what you said.
One of my memories of the mime troupe is going with you all to visit a youth facility. You worked with the youth and they put on a very realistic (I wonder why!) performance of the police frisking and arresting a number of people. I don’t remember what the point of the mime was–except to say, this is our reality–it was very powerful.
