“I am a teller of stories, a weaver of dreams, I can dance, sing, and in the right weather, I can stand on my head. I know seven words of Latin, I have a little magic, and a trick or two. I know the proper way to meet a dragon, I can fight dirty but not fair, I once swallowed thirty oysters in a minute. I am not domestic, I am luxury, and in that sense, necessary” ~Jim Henson’s The Storyteller.
