Avens is creating reflections.

patrons

A video will come eventually, but people have been asking me for months to make a Patreon, and I delay over silly details like not having a video, and that obstructs me from making this into what people want - a place to contribute towards the work I do.

I'm Avens O'Brien. I write, I travel, I rarely but occasionally make videos, I do podcasts, interviews, speeches, take photos at events, make social commentary and more. It's hard to sum up in a singular phrase, so I chose "reflections". I like to reflect on the world and then make something - whether commentary or a photo album, that expresses what I'm seeing - sometimes how things are, and sometimes how they should be.

If that's of interest to you to support, I'd appreciate it. Thank you for your attention, time, and support.

You can request a topic (up to once a month that you're in this tier) that I *will* make a video or article about. And I have to do it. You don't decide my opinion, but you get me to sound off on it.
