Here's a little video in which I talk about the importance of community, connection, resilience and finding our way. It was rather spontaneous, and is totally unedited, but I think it explains things in a way you might like.

Meanwhile, a little more about Patreon...
The best way to describe Patreon is like a musical CSA (community supported agriculture): I am the farmer ~ planting, tending and harvesting artistic creations that nourish the heart and soul. If you join and become my patron, you will make a regular financial contribution of your choice each month, and in return you will receive in your personal email inbox, a direct link to whatever musical or creative bounty I harvest each month.
Patreon is set up so that different contribution levels (also known as "tiers") can receive different benefits depending on how much they give. I have set mine up differently - every level gets the same benefits. I know that $10 can mean something very different from one person to another. So my tiers go from $3 - $100, and they're all the same.
I would be SO honored and grateful should you choose to join me on this path. It is a wonderful way to nourish and grow community right now in these strange covid times. It is also the new way of the artist, which is actually a very ancient way (there are long traditions of the arts being made possible by patrons).
I see it simply as a reminder of our beautiful interconnectedness.
