In Memory of Arnie Reisman
Arnie Reisman served as the Martha’s Vineyard Poet Laureate from 2014 – 2016. His collection of poems, “Light-Headed in the Dark Ages” has just been released, and is available at Bunches of Grapes, Cronig’s, and Amazon. For the past 24 years he and his wife Paula have been regular panelists on the NPR weekly comedy quiz show, “Says You!” He also writes columns for the Vineyard Gazette.
Pathways hosts a bi-weekly senior discussion group called, GRAY MATTERS, led by a senior, for seniors over the age of 65. The group will meet via Zoom, until the pandemic passes – and during the off-season.
The gathering provides an opportunity to talk with others about challenges that concern older people as individuals, and as Islanders.
“We are not alone in the things that we worry about – or the things we laugh, grieve, enjoy and agitate over. As we get more comfortable with each other, we’ll begin to explore the different stereotypes that are assigned to older people. Some Role Playing and Improv can facilitate this exploration. The direction the group takes will depend largely on the personality of the group.”
Genevieve H. Abbot, Facilitator, is an Island Senior, and has a BA in Psychology, and a Masters in Theater. She has acted and directed at The Vineyard Playhouse and has created a variety of adult and children’s programs. Recently, you may have seen her dancing at The Yard/Chilmark and at Sally Cohen’s Studio / Edgartown in the WWW (What’s Written Within) Improv Group, as well as participating in performance events at PathwaysARTS.
