Plus: some non-standard help

I wonder if you know of this weekly source of inspiration.  Maria Popova has given her life and her immense range of knowledge of inspirational writings to stir our commitment to the common good. This message speaks for itself.  Her weekly readings illustrate the provenance of the word ‘author’ in the Latin ‘auctos’, meaning ‘to allow to grow’ !! Peter

Dear Peter,
if my labor of love has enriched your life in any way, please consider paying it forward by sharing The Marginalian with someone you love. For sixteen years, it has endured on the wings of appreciation from readers – not only in the form of donations, which are the only reason it remains free (and ad-free) for everyone, but in the infinite generosity we call word-of-mouth: the lovely gift of one human being telling another about something they cherish. It would mean a lot to me if you would introduce one person in your life to The Marginalian – they can sign up for the weekly newsletter at this link. It is free and will always remain so, for as long as I am alive to think these thoughts and write these words.
Waving with warm aliveness, Maria

Every month, I spend hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars keeping The Marginalian going. For sixteen years, it has remained free and ad-free and alive thanks to patronage from readers. I have no staff, no interns, not even an assistant — a thoroughly one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor makes your own life more livable in any way, please consider aiding its sustenance with a one-time or loyal donation. Your support makes all the difference. • monthly donation – You can become a Sustaining Patron with a recurring monthly donation of your choosing, between a cup of tea and a Brooklyn lunch: one-time donation • Or you can become a Spontaneous Supporter with a one-time donation in any amount. • Partial to Bitcoin? You can beam some bit-love my way:

• Need to cancel an existing donation? (It’s okay — life changes course. I treasure your kindness and appreciate your support for as long as it lasted.) You can do so on this page. • If a friend forwarded it to you and you’d like your very own newsletter, subscribe here — it’s free. loving = sharing
