Hat Tricks

Cowboy Hats and Western Hats from Hartford York Hats - Men's Stetson Fur Felt Hat - The Open Road Fur FeltSeems I was inadventently practicing a little of the artform known as chapeaugraphy the other day, when I was playing with a piece of fur felt.

A little background: in 1618, a Parisian street performer added to his tricks with a ring-shaped piece of felt, manipulating it to look like various types of hats atop a variety of characters. This was the start of a performance art that is still sometimes practiced today (by others besides myself, I mean).

I can’t help but take this event as some sort of powerful sign. Either it’s for me to expand my empire into show biz or to get out of hats altogether.

I’ll let you know…

Thanks for reading,
