Community

My dream is to build a community of COMMUNAL folk, where everyone pays it forward when they can–and they pay it back always. A place where religion, color, societal status, political beliefs, sexual orientation, etc–none of that shit matters; everyone is respected and looked out for the same…

If they do their part.

The inspiration for my dream came from my 2k thread. I gave everything I had to the anonymous readers in there for a long time. Organically (I never even considered it, much less asked for it), the anonymous readers just started giving back, in whatever ways they could/felt were appropriate.

When I started podcasting, the 2k thread community came along–and it began blossoming like a beautiful flower, sprouting up taller and stronger by the day, in the middle of a swamp where flowers simply don’t grow…

For now, my role is to water the flower. I do so by telling my story–a cautionary tale with incredibly valuable lessons learned. I tell it in writing: I continue to post in my 2k thread weekly, I post on this site whenever the mood strikes me, and I am always working on at least one book…

But more so, I tell my story from behind a microphone, where I use my greatest gift, “the gift of gab”, something I wan’t born with (at all) but rather developed over decades of traveling and playing poker.

My dream is to do something good in this dark world, to provide a place of solidarity for ANYONE who is ready to be COMMUNAL. I’m merely the guy trudging through the swamp with the watering can each day though, clearing branches if they block the sunshine from reaching the flower…

You all are the flower.
