We talk...we listen...we express ourselves through words.

Featured artist, Ron VanNostrand with his band, The Flock of Free Range Children, performed at The Carriage House Theater on March 23rd at The Cayuga Museum, as part of the "Word, Revisited" literary program.

Words form our existence with each other, and shape those thoughts in our mind when we quietly speak to ourselves.

Words are our conversational dialogue as we navigate our life, and more importantly, words provide our structural foundation when we create images and platforms to mold and manifest our creative ideas.     

It is then fitting that we celebrate words especially as expressed in poetry, fiction, dramatic works, and especially as lyrics to a musical composition.  Poetry formed Smokey Robinson’s songs and have built the foundations for many songwriters.  And last night, Ron VanNostrand used words as a poet and lyricist to mesmerize “word, revisited” participants who were transported to levels of personal exuberance and embraceable life memories.  

Publisher of the multiple decades young, print literary journal, Olive Trees, and erudite leader of the diverse and eccentric musical group, The Flock of Free Range Children, who accompanied him, Van Nostrand took the “word,revisited” audience on an intimate journey through his personal reflections and lyrical life stories.

In the aftermath of World Poetry Day and the forthcoming National Poetry Month, Ron Van Nostrand weaved poetic magic to the delight of those who had the opportunity to hear him.   The Cayuga Museum’s literary series “word, revisited” was well served by Van Nostrand’s presentation.
