FLASHBACK FRIDAY – JOHNNY AND THE TSANTSA

jw-on-carsonNovember 17, 1976.  When I wrote my book “The Adventurer’s Guide,” it was a fantasy of mine to go on the Tonight Show and have Johnny Carson hold a “tsantsa,” a human shrunken head – as a book chapter was “How To Live With Headhunters.”  As you can see, that fantasy came true.  I still can’t believe how relaxed I was in the studio photo.  That’s because Carson had a magical ability to put a guest like me, no professional performer, at ease.  The cameras and lights, the audience, millions watching on TV all went away.  It was just me talking to this friendly fellow with no one around.  An amazing experience.  Some dreams can really happen!  (Glimpses of Our Breathtaking World #40 photo ©Jack Wheeler)
