I write not only because I enjoy writing but also to help create a new awareness about the consequences of our choices, attitudes and lifestyles. I rarely, if ever, undertake commissioned work on SJD. Even contest posts on SJD are usually in line with my overall thinking. In addition to this blog, I also work to create viable platforms for stakeholders in the social repair process. Some of these are overt (like SoCh) while others are less blatant (like poetry groups, jazz appreciation, bloggers meets, writers workshops, etc.). None of these activities are for profit, and most are funded by our own contributions. Your support - be it in the form of buying a subscription, making a donation, or just helping spread the word about what we are doing out here - is deeply appreciated.
