Some of my readers will remember my writing a post last year entitled "Acts of Faith," in which I talked about the circumstance of being an artist. That post has been removed from the blog, as a condition of my posting a rewrite on Vocal Media. The article can be read here.
It wouldn't hurt me at all if the reader would kindly click the link for the article, as my payment for the article is keyed to how much attention it receives. Therefore, you could do me a great kindness if you would go there, let the mouse slowly scan past the paragraphs for all of 30 seconds, before passing on to something else you're doing. Free for you; might mean money for me.
