Welcome to Blank Pages Virtual Salon!
From Noon on Saturday March 21st to Midnight Sunday March 22nd
Given the prescribed constraints regarding social gatherings and interaction, we’re moving this show to the Blog this month (March 21) with a prompt. We’re thinking about freedom, what it means to us individually and collectively, and under what circumstances that meaning can shift.
Of course, recent events have significantly impacted what we might think of as freedom, but consider, too, other events and times in your life—a job, a new baby, some period of time in which your parameters were redrawn.
Enter your responses in the Comments section, in any fashion you like—a poem, a stream of consciousness riff, a piece of flash fiction, and respond to your fellow writers.
The Virtual Salon is Asynchronous (we’ll be hearing that word a lot), meaning that we don’t all have to be present at the same time. Come back over the course of the next day-and-a-half and read and respond to the ongoing conversation.
2.How important is freedom to you today? What do you give up for personal freedom, if anything (security, safety, relationships, etc.)? And, what do you think has most influenced your attitudes and beliefs regarding personal freedom?
