About Words - A Sheila Patrons Preview

Sheila this week came across a mime with an extraordinary story.  Marcel Marceau is well known for his character Bip, who shared his emotions wordlessly, but so empathically.

Well, Marcel was a member of  the French Resistance during WWII, and saved many a Jewish child ... by shutting up sometimes. More on that HERE 

Sheila pointed out to me that perhaps Marcel was inspired by Cato the Younger, who said: “I begin to speak only when I’m certain what I’ll say isn’t better left unsaid.” 

She would know. Unlike me, she only opens her mouth when she has something to say! 😁
