Las Vegas, Nevada

I spent the first half of the day contacting people asking for sustainable contribution to keep going. Everyday, reality is setting in more how I have no security and no prospect to pay the basic bills. On some level I realize none of us has the security we think exists. For the last few years I was constantly assured that my back would be covered but I am too smart to put all my eggs in one basket with that idea but still... there was comfort in the idea. As I began to go crazy with the process of raising funds I just stopped and zone out for the second half of the day. God it is difficult to ask people for money and even more to deal with the rejection. It is my choice and I do enjoy giving people the opportunity to contribute. The Traveling Piano is a way... a worthwhile opportunity to give.

As I said on the first of the month, my funding stopped. There had been one main contributor for the last two years. The well has run dry. There is no reserve, no external income. I must sustain the ability to share the Traveling Piano without obligation or expectation while paying for living expenses such as rent. More about that can be found on the November 24th blog entry. In any case, please set up a Traveling Piano subscription: Subscription/ Contribution Link. Make a one time contribution: PayPal Me for the Traveling Piano. Contribute via Facebook: Facebook Fundraiser Contact me for other alternatives via my email address found on this link: Contact Me.
