Marionettes Created Magical Memories

October 20, 1998

I write in response to "Hanging by a Thread" (Oct. 1), a story that pulled up soul-filled memories. Thirty-some years ago my children and I, as a part of the Tustin Community Co-op preschool, were treated to a traveling Bob Baker marionette performance. The sheer beauty of that production never faded. Twenty-five years later I gathered my first three grandchildren and their mother for a drive to the little theater tucked under a mid-L.A. freeway to again be rewarded with a whirlwind celebration of art. Last summer it was another grandchild trip, this time with a 5-year-old birthday girl and her mother, who recalled the same magic she'd felt at that same age.

The art and imagination that this live, interpersonal treasure bring to children must find support.
