The Gypsy Spirit Mission, a global collaboration dedicated to
creativity and the promotion of artistic expression, had its beginnings
in cyberspace. An outgrowth of a decade-old desire to organize a "storyteller's

creativity and productivity were unhampered by parenting, financial obligations,
and geographical isolation.
I proposed - in the form of a challenge -- that we revive our flagging
