It's a funny game. You may never ever get anything from me ever. I'm a bit of a perfectionist. This patreon is more an encouragement. A reminder that what I have to give the world is appreciated by someone. I do think my time and skill is worth despite the many years I have tried to convince myself that 'art' is a higher calling. What good is 'art' if you can't afford the time to make it. The real things I want to do don't pay bills- write musicals, make films, perform. The things that do- teaching, arranging, making backing tracks, commercials etc - chew all my time.  I'm buying opportunity. The chance to give of my true self.
