I really appreciate those of y’all that have been able to stick through,
although I absolutely understand that there are folk who haven’t been able to or just chose not to any longer.
Between Ko-fi & Patreon, and other occasional methods of collection, there has been a total of $4,213.96 donated to the Accessibility Fund since May 2020 which has aided in offering manual captionists for low budget events, sensory aids, mobility aids, masks, and support and survival funds.
(To note, I know in December I updated to say that I would be transitioning to pocket the funds from my Patreon as I transition all Accessibility Funds things to Ko-fi, but none of that ever happened)
Originally when I made this Patreon I had no clue what-so-ever what I wanted to do with it, and didn’t have a solid conceptualization of how to contribute the funds outside of accessibility (broad definition), which in part included planning for an event I have had to accept I most likely am not going to be able to organize. I most certainly hadn’t accounted for or expected how the rest of that year & the time following would break me down.
But, I’m back!
I got some ideas,
And my lens has shifted a lot since I last posted.
Because of some relationships that I am grateful for, I have also found myself more able to write & I’m curious to share that here (as well as my blog) in hopes of fundraising for my communities as well as sharing my exploration.
Still imagining what that will look like in entirety, but at least this is a visible call of change. To start, it might look like poetry, notes on things that I’ve been studying, and reflections. Who knows where that may go 🤷🏾.
Ooo, also, public apology for msgs that I have missed. I will be getting to those at my soonest availability. Been slowly catching up on things I fell behind on within the past year.
Anything y’all have been exploring lately?
I’ve been having a great time learning about BaKongo Cosmology, & digging into Factor Analysis ✨
