Puppets bring a street performer and an aging activist together

Ricky Syers has been performing on New York streets for years. He got tired of working as a laborer, turned to music, then began creating puppets that make even harried grownups slow down to watch. Recently, the 50-year-old performer met Doris Diether and made a marionette of the 86-year-old activist. The friendship blossomed, and now the two of them can sometimes be seen performing together.

Syers’s whimsical creations would make anyone smile. So if you’re feeling down, don’t wait another minute. Meet a man following his Muse all the way to joy.
