There's a joke about how the things medical professionals do is considered "practicing" when they should probably already be pretty practiced at all that stuff. I imagine it's a decent joke if someone other than myself tells it, but the attitude that begat the term "medical practice" is a good and healthy one. It started out in the 1300s meaning, simply, "to do" (having, unlike our modern understanding, no implication whatsoever that "practicing" something means you're no good at it yet). After a century or two, it had morphed into "to do repeatedly to acquire skill". That, after all, is how one learns, and when someone appears to others to have no need to continue practicing a skill, it's only because they've spent so long practicing and, indeed, are continuing to do so.

I am not a medical professional, nor do I intend to become one. In fact, that's the end of the medical metaphor (mediphor?). I'm an artist, and intend to hold onto that title one way or another; to that end, I believe in practice. This Patreon page is a means for me to keep it going. 

I also believe in sharing; collective knowledge is the only reason humans have anything to show for themselves. Even though I'm not some once-in-a-generation genius or anything, I can contribute processes, techniques, failures, successes, thoughts, stories, and everything else generated as a byproduct of insistently creative tendencies for the benefit of myself and others. 

Rosefoot is creating a Patreon page to benefit from features that will be shortly rescinded to new members due to the unprincipled operation of Patreon as a corporation under the constraints of late stage capitalism. Please forgive a temporary lack of content.

Goals
$0 of $500 per month
When I reach $500 per month, I will have reached $500 per month. The majority of funds will go towards defining tautologies, which will then be defined.
