In the previous 2 stages, we have learned about the ancient history of Puppets, and their vital roles in entertainment, storytelling, politics, and society.  We have been able to reflect on their application with children and adults as a means of communicating our feelings, illustrating our relationships as well and externalizing our struggles.  Always the puppet helps us to free thoughts and feelings that are difficult to put into direct words.  The puppet does not even have to speak but can move, gesture, make sounds,  and maybe sink into gloom or dance with joy.
