J. Schiele and K. Downey talk with their father, Skip Schiel, about what led him to move to Boston in the 1960s, his activism during the Vietnam War, his interest in cooperative living, and his work as a photographer and filmmaker.
This is one of about 7 interviews, partly organized chronologically, only one on StoryCorps, that my daughters have conducted with me in 2021. Because of privacy issues, presently the interview is private. If you wish to listen, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a link. Eventually, I hope to restore public access.
Someday we will regard our children not as creatures to manipulate or to change but rather as messengers from a world we once deeply knew, but which we have long since forgotten, who can reveal to us more about the true secrets of life, and also our own lives, than our parents were ever able to.
