Greetings, folks!  I’m excited to announce that I’ve just launched a Patreon account, and I’ve set it up entirely on a gift model.  Great news: I am in communication with a publisher who is interested in On The Leisure Track, my half-finished book manuscript.  It’s a personal narrative about decolonizing time and the process of unlearning the internalized capitalist work ethic.  With your support, I will be able to finish writing it!

The revised and improved version of my essay “Is Nothing Sacred? On ‘Doing Nothing’ and Leisure as Resistance,” which is a condensed version of one of the chapters from On The Leisure Track, is also in the works.  And that’s just a start!  Patrons will have access to all writings I release before they are available to the public.

If you’re interested in my writing, I encourage you to give the page a read whether or not you’re interested in becoming a patron, as it features some musings about the role of play and leisure in my work, plus links to many of my recent published writings.

I’ve also included links to a few of the people whose work has inspired mine, such as Francis Weller, Charles Eisenstein, Matt Cardin, and Alley Valkyrie, whose brilliant piece “Poverty, Worth, and the Hovering Ghost of Calvin” is a must-read.

Thank you so much for your support!
