24 hours ago I posted a call for assistance. Hoping to get rent covered, maybe the bills, fingers crossed.
I have been blown away by the generosity and outpouring of love Aiden and I have received.
Between paypal, checks we know are on the way, and other items, our immediate financial concerns are all set. It’s been… inspiring. I have broken down crying at points, curled up and gaped at my sister a few times, forwarded amazing emails onto Aiden (and had him do the same).
At the International Parliament for World Religions last year, I listed myself as a Shaman in my registration. They required listing tribe. I listed Leather.
In the past 24 hours, I have been shown that indeed I am a loved Shaman for this tribe, and that I’ve done good on this planet. That the ripples keep rippling out… and that the ripples, in times of need, have rippled back.
So thank you. Thank you all. To those who have stepped up in a thousand ways, and keep stepping up.
I still need help with keeping upbeat and positive (you know, like videos of hampsters on pianos). We need help with various projects in the flesh, and rides. But for now, it seems that the financial concerns are taken care of. If folks want to pledge support to an artist/shaman beyond this, it’s all cool… but there are also others who need our assistance. Folks in our communities living with cancer, suffering under job loss, working to rebuild their homes after storms. Turn around and see who else needs aide- because the world deserves it, our communities deserve it, and helping those in need is a powerful act of love.
Thank you all for your love.
