My first Renaissance Faire was in Agora, CA in 1974, when I lived at the fabulous McCoy Ranch north of Malibu, with a bunch of people including Light, shown here.

Tony was a great violinist.

This is the fair where I first saw a rope-walker, which got me started on my future career.

If you like dragons & gargoyles, The Renaissance Faires are your kind of place.

The Faire version of a pillow fight.

These are the Tramp Champs, then Canada's best, part of Puck's Canadian Traveling Circus, which I joined briefly in 1976 as their not-so-tight-rope artist.

Here I am at a Renaissance Faire in Clearwater, Florida in 1983

The Texas Renaissance Faire where I performed 1985-6. Some jugglers from Austin.

The belly dance stage was a performers' favorite.

Texas fans were passionate.

Michael and Marilyn Marzella were the King and Queen at many fairs, and set an example for all monarchs, real and fantasy.
