The Joker Card

I’m captured here as the Joker in a vintage set of souvenir playing cards from the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.

It’s been a joy to be a player at the the festival for 40 seasons.  I remember in the beginning I was caught by the magic that was happening all around me.  As the festival grew I began to think that the magic was disappearing, until I realized that it was up to me to create it myself.  From that day on I strived to become the vehicle in which others could experience the magic that first caught me.

The Minnesota Renaissance Festival opens its 45th season this Saturday, August 22, 2015.  I hope to see there.
