These are hard times for huge numbers of people across the world, and across the street. Physically, emotionally, financially, we’re feeling the pinch. Poorer, weaker and less powerful folks are suffering the most. It’s the responsibility of the world’s “leaders” to lead with reason, science and compassion for the well-being of all. And, I hope you’re taking care of yourself and staying healthy.
In my personal situation, here’s what I’m thinking. Every now and then I post an “invitation” for readers to get involved in my work as a writer and teacher. Most of my work is unpaid and I know from years working for non-profits that the choice to give to others won’t always pay the bills. Yet, when you love what you’re doing, you make the best of it … you do what you can!
Today I want to invite you. . .give you the opportunity. . .to join me in the joy of my writing and teaching.
Since my class on Thoreau was cancelled along with some of the weddings that supplement my income, I’ve been keeping busy with exciting new projects.
I’ve been completing two new books that I hope to publish soon!
Following my last book, A Freethinker’s Gospel, these are new collections of the columns I write each week for the Asheville Citizen-Times. If you want to hold another year’s worth of my essays in your hand (and buy them for friends and family) you can know that YOU were a part of the creative process!
Here’s how to be a partner in my writing:
If readers would contribute One Dollar for each of my weekly essays, that would be $52 for the year. More than that would be. . .well, more than that!
