A hybrid patronage and product model to reflect the medium and message
Here you are, helping to rebuild what is broken, using all of your gifts and talents and recognizing that everything is possible with the love of God infused! Those breaches of trust that so many of us have and are dealing with are helping to shape "we have only begun to explore what is possible' because our hearts have been broken open and now we get to participate in healing them and therefore support others in that endeavor. NO nefarious platform, group, trolls, etc can EVER fully suppress your very special "eccentricity and sense of mischief" and once again, we have God to thank for that since YOU are a precious Creation of the Almighty!
Keep "telling too much truth and pushing too much beauty" as NOTHING can stop You and your attention to your call!
Godspeed, my friend!
Thanks for that, Martin.
I read about 10 substacks and feel bad about not supporting them. I support you and four other alternative news outlets. That is as far as I can go.
I am curious why most substack writers don't include single donations. I may buy a magazine or newspaper and I am happy to pay for it - but I may not be able to afford a subscription; however, if I read one of my substacks and find a particularly well-written entry and there was a quick easy way to lob $5-10 from time to time, I know I would do that:

Our son, a techie, always says that fewer clicks mean more sales.
You are back. Thank you for all of your efforts. They are invaluable tools.
Very, very well thought out, considered and reflected upon. May these new ways become highways of creativity and kudos. Gratitude.
Upgraded to paid. God’s beauty is indeed of a wide variety. We need to remember to celebrate the Creator and not creation. God bless.
My distant Substack friend, so fond you’re posting. I hear as I read, a very meticulous business model developing. What ever you are up to I’ll certainly, if I’m allowed, will “ be in. “. I know that you will be successful. So glad to read and enjoy your spectacular journey and art.
