Synkroniciti is proud to feature the artists of our newest online issue, “Intersections,” available for download here: https://synkroniciti.com/the-magazine/purchase-individual-issues/.
Please join us in welcoming back poet, writer and performer Joan Leotta with “Have all the intersections gone?,” a poetic musing on roundabouts. Is it really in our best interest to keep moving all of the time? Modern humanity is always seeking to make things smoother and easier through technology, but sometimes we lose the moments of connection that give our lives purpose and meaning, or that give us rest. There is always a trade-off. Imagine how much life has changed since we created the automobile. Are we happier because of it?
