On New Year’s Day, I was able to watch the Mister Chris and Friends series on Vermont Public Television and boy, did his show lift my spirits. I already have tickets for his performance at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland on Sunday, Jan. 19, at noon. I hope my grandchildren can go but if they cannot, I am going without them.

You see, I, too, need Mister Chris’s message. We all do.

... and his music. He writes a new song on every show and they are all sung from the heart. And … it’s not just Mister Chris. It’s his friends, too, all kinds of really authentic Vermont people. I didn’t know about Dr. Francois Clemmons, an old friend of “the” Mr. Rogers who sang with Mister Chris, a most beautiful song. I want to learn to sing and play all of Mister Chris songs because he sings what I feel, too. He sings about kindness from the heart. His music helps me a lot these days.

Please do not miss this show in Rutland, with or without the kiddos.
