Freedom’s just another word...

Co-curators Rocky Pinciotti, left, and Mary Greene invite gallery visitors to create their own "love line" at “Be Mine Forever,” an exhibition of photography and poetry now running at the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance Gallery in Narrowsburg.

Synchronicity being what it is, it came as no surprise to find myself in Callicoon, NY (www.cafedevine.com)—this time participating with another writers’ group (www.facebook.com/yarnslingers) expounding on their individual interpretation of a common theme: “Freedom.” Ten storytellers gathered to share thoughts, songs and tales in another packed house, eliciting laughter and tears, not uncommon for this diverse troupe. Yarnslingers is an open group, constantly striving to include anyone who wishes to express himself or herself in a public forum, with few constraints. Sometimes I wonder why I choose to take the mic, but the answer is usually the same. Nothin’ left to lose.
