"Fowl" Play - COVID Stories: A digital memoir from the pandemicThis installment is about animals and people during the pandemic. Today's installment is about Pigeons, Bats, Ducks, and us! Turns out relationships with animals can be just as complex and misunderstood as any of our relationships with other humans. In today's installment Jim Search forms a bittersweet relationship with the pigeon on his balcony, Alexander Payne confronts a fellow shopper who thinks Chinese bat eaters are to blame for the pandemic and Bill Reick makes friends with a mama duck and her babies until his bread crumbs run out. __________________________________________ Subscribe to First Person Arts YouTube: https://tinyurl.com/SubscribetoFPA Share your COVID Story: https://www.firstpersonarts.org/Stori...

"In the News" - COVID Stories: A digital memoir from the pandemic.The newspapers are full of headlines about the stimulus money we all are waiting to receive or best practices on self quarantining. Storytellers this week have found themselves living lives straight from the pages of the papers. Listen to Dan retell his experience at, maybe his last Broadway show, for a really long while, and Emily as self quarantining became a deeper reflection of the love between her and her husband. Then we have Yemima sharing how the stimulus check affected her - in Israel and Heidi delights us with her brand of quarantining efficiency. First Person Arts - We will keep you company. ________________________________________________ Subscribe to First Person Arts YouTube: https://tinyurl.com/SubscribetoFPA Share your COVID Story: https://www.firstpersonarts.org/Stories/COVID-Stories First Person Arts ON SOCIAL First Person Arts Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/firstpersonarts First Person Arts Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FirstPersonPhilly/ First Person Arts Twitter: https://twitter.com/FirstPersonArts Subscribe to our Email List Like First Person Arts: https://www.firstpersonarts.org/signup #StoryPrompts #Storytelling #FirstPersonArts
