Working my way to hope for the New Year

There has been a lot of loss and pain this year that I have not published. My life and writing is multifaceted and I was focusing on other things. And it was a very good year in so many respects. As the year came to a close, I wrote a list of highlights and accomplishments in my personal journal and there was so much to appreciate and be thankful for.

Late 2017 we faced the inescapable reality that we needed a more regular and predictable flow of income. We needed to be able to count on a pay check, not the whims of clients who did or did not pay on time. We needed more money for the stage of life we're in. And we were faced with a big tax bill that Damien's work alone was unable to pay. It was super stressful and it was a situation that pushed both Damien and I into new employment.

As much as I use writing as a path to some kind of clarity, like intellectual handholds on the journey of life, what I really want to say is come and see. Experience this. Patreon is helping me do that.

If you resonate at all with how I write; with honesty, vulnerability, seeking truth and beauty; or with what I write (the topics, themes, and ideas), I think you’re really going to enjoy these interviews and connecting with other people who are also engaging with these interviews.
