What Makes a Story Worth Telling?

by Kathleen Weber

“Did it make you laugh? Or make you cry? Did you think that you were going to die?
“Were you so scared that your skin crawled? Did you fly real high?
“Did you stumble? Fall? Did it spiritually touch or humble you?
“Were you left wondering – I am who?
“When heart and mind and soul collide, it’s time to put your life aside.
“And like your third grade teacher taught, put pen in hand and share your thought.”

Kathleen is one of eight In Print members to have her work featured at the Allegory Project, an art space and exhibition co-sponsored by the Art Matters Artist Coop and the Rockford Area Arts Council. The Allegory Project plans to have a theme that is explored in various art forms: painting and sculpture, photography, repurposed objects, and the spoken and written word.

Kathleen’s piece and the others have been framed at the gallery and are available for viewing from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday through the end of May. The show space is on the northwest corner of Madison and Prairie Streets in Rockford
