Now more than ever, we need to help each other.
Yesterday I met at Central Market here in Austin, Texas with three different people who I am GIVING my services to. I kept hearing myself say something dumb like, “You can’t afford me…” I am a bit full of myself at the moment. (More on that in another blog.) “But I’m going to do this for you for free, just because I want to support you. I have plenty of money, and now I want to give it back to my friends and people/artists I want to support.
So why would I spend almost an entire afternoon to help a photographer, a beautiful jazz singer, and a singer/songwriter I’ve known for over 25 years? Why would I fill my scedule yesterday with non-paying clients? Why would I give myself uncompensated projects for the weekend? Shouldn’t I be kicking back this weekend? Shouldn’t we all be recovering from our hectic week of work?
Something is happening within the #resistance to our president.
Here is Newton’s Third Law of Motion:
|Third law:||When one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body.|
Here’s what I think is happening with that. As Trump continues to drive our country into the darkness of racism, mysogeny, and ignorance, WE THE PEOPLE are starting to wake up and push back. While there’s not much we can do until Mueller get’s his case together, there is a lot we can do as individuals.
You can support your friends. You can give your services away. You can make a committment to give a percentage of your work away for free, for the greater good.
I’m not trying to be a saint, or make much of a point, beyond… Help each other out. We all need it.
And with that said, if there is anything I can do for you, please let me know. If we’re friends, and you’re local, I do it for a cup of coffee at Central Market central or South. You tell me. And then let’s see what we can do to help support each other in this dark and trying time.
