Do you love the arts? Do you think that artists should be paid for their work and that work makes our society beautiful and worth living in? I sure do! (Or else I wouldn’t write.) Well, I just found a site to help artists of all kinds find people who value them and will support their work: Patreon!
Do you love my writing? If you do, become my patron! For just $1 or $3 a month (or more if you rock) you can be just like Lorenzo Di Medici and help artists create. The hairdo is optional.
Just click this button! (Or look to the right and click on Lorenzo in the sidebar.)
If you are an artist, poet, musician, or writer, or whatever art form you love, create your own page!
Connect with my link and I will get a bonus!
Here’s my page:

If you don’t live here, you really don’t get it. Sure, you need your coffee in the morning just like any other responsible adult. But in Seattle there is a special connection with our java that transcends the relationship of people in a lot of other places.
