I went to Brown University in Providence and stayed in the area. I started a non-profit puppet theater in 1970, The Puppet Workshop, and it went out of business in 1993. Since then, I started working as a story teller, face painter, and arts and crafts teacher. I am a survivor of sexual abuse, and after the memories returned in 1994. I spent much time and money finding out their truth. Before that, I had had two marriages, and two children. Over the last 20 years, I have dealt with depression, went on disability, met a wonderful woman, and slowly returned to writing, teaching arts and crafts, and face painting.

School Story

I went to Brown University in Providence and stayed in the area. I started a non-profit puppet theater in 1970, The Puppet Workshop, and it went out of business in 1993. Since then, I started working as a story teller, face painter, and arts and crafts teacher. I think my time at Cubberly were good years. Jim Parsons and Mac Kaplowitz had good times. They prepared me for Brown, and teacher David Buck can take the credit for my forty years as a puppeteer, storyteller, face painter, and arts and crafts teacher. I will never forget being in social studies when John F. Kennedy was killed, the graduation prank when Richard Kilbourne played on us with the gym locker locks, and, of course, graduation. I just took the time to look at th list of members of our class who have passed away, and the names bring whole days back for me--so sad that they are gone. We were a special class at a special time, and in our lives, we have lived through years of heddy success and decades of war. I watched the 60s show on television, and thought it missed everything.

Happy Birthday!!! It is lucky for me that I get to wish the most beautiful girl in the world Birthday greetings!! Hope you are having lots of fun...It's the kind of day that brings back memories,.,,both good an bad....I must have loved you at many points 50 years ago, but please forgive for saying that.

Happy Birthday, Skip! I do remember Squire! You were always the most talented of all of us, and you sister, Mary, was great, too. How is she doing? Do you have a blogspot or web site of your work? thanks

Laurie, Happy Birthday on Sunday!! I just read your post from last March. Thanks for writing. This is a beautiful piece. I am going to save it, because not only is it moving, but very well written. There is in drawing an issue of the artist's line--that it be sure and strong. You words are sure and strong. In my dream last night, someone who had passed visited, and I had thought of her often but never saw her in a dream. And yes, I have felt that she would walk into the room sometimes. I am very sorry for your loss, but you have limned the situation of loss in a very kind and compassionate way.

Happy Birthday, Larry! You story is great. There is the expectation of losing people as the story goes along. Then, it turns out that all of the crew survived, and even got a reward for the work. That makes the last line very powerful, for your crew survived that day, but 58,193 did not make it back. It brings so much back to me, I did not serve, but there was a hopelessness about the whole endeavor that still moves. Thank you. Excellent work
