Summer before last, we fled a harrowing situation in Colorado. Hauled our whole life across the Rockies in a 16' truck, towing a very old car, with my two broken feet and a greybeard cat named Fauntleroy. We did the right thing. Embarrassed to ask, but.. More ...

In the summer of 2012 Leroy and I arrived in northern California with a half truckload of books, my guitars, a beat up old car and a sigh of relief. We live within our means and until very recently, we've been doing alright. I support the two of us by freelance writing, and have been (very) slowly digging out of the debt incurred by the move and subsequent setting up of a simple home. I have no savings at all.

Suddenly, in a matter of three early February days, I lost my main source of income, my car broke down, stranding me on a mountain road in the rain, and a cataract that was repaired several years ago came back with a vengeance.

I've helped other people crowdfund, and I know that even the tiniest of donations add up. If you are able to chip in a few bucks, it will be hugely APPRECIATED. If you cannot, that's understandable. Brightest blessings just the same! Seems a lot of (let's say MOST) good people are in financial straits now.

We have no gifts or premiums to offer in exchange for donations. I'll never forget your kindness, though. As for the cat, well, you know how they are. I thank you on his behalf.

Thanks for reading this whole thing.

Kaanii and Leroy
