The Beard and the Bonnet [or is it a Babushka?]

As a tribute to

David Novak's String Figure Jack, I would like to offer some astute reflections on ambidexterity and androgyny, correlated with the Doubting Game and the Believing Game, and what by now must be fourth wave of feminism, what I like to call the rise of the Feminary. But all that is much too complicated for so late at night, so I will instead invite you to enjoy David's amazing performance. This is my quintessential example of string game storytelling, so far, and I am dreaming of a retelling of "Ma Liang and the Magic Brush" which might employ almost as many different figures...My MacArthur Project...
