Thank you 2016!.
As part of a vow and dreamvision that is at the basis of my art and life, I am so grateful to have been able to pulse out a record number (for me) of 10%s to special causes and intitiatives in 2016! I believe in the accumulating power of all our small positive actions...and so while I'm here on this planet, no matter what, and in whatever small way, I vow to be part of a nourishing rain on as many beautiful endeavors as possible to help them grow. <3 Let there be thousands of us, reaching out to millions- wherever needed
Please take a look and join me in crowdfunding any of these that move you if you can! And with Determination, the 2017 Wishlist is now underway!

Entanglement (detail)
'Entanglement' (detail)

"We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibres connect with our fellow men; and among those fibres, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects." Herman Melville

As part of a vow that is at the heart of my art and life....since 2002...I try to channel 10% of what comes to me back out into the world to nurture positive projects that move me and end uneccessary suffering. Microphilanthropy. Not huge amounts...but small amounts that make a difference in the big picture..given with love and hope...as often as possible.

As the year comes to a close I look back and take stock of all I'm grateful for...I am perhaps almost always most grateful that I was able to do a little something to help support and sustain these wonderful organizations and initiatives that are doing work we need done in the world. It feels really...REALLY good. I hope that 2012 allows me to channel more and more...as there are so many other ones I am looking forward to being able to help in any small (or LARGE!) way..as well as more donations for those I am already connected to.

So here is to the ones of 2011 - follow links to find out more and please join me in supporting any and all of them if you can- may they have all they need onward into the future: see list )
