I want to give a shout-out of my own to the early-bird contributors to the campaign - without you, I would surely be freaking. As I have told many people, starting this campaign - asking for money to complete a project I think is vitally important but nonetheless is still asking for money - was like walking into high school naked. Every time someone donates, I feel like I'm getting back a piece of clothing. So, thank you for making me feel not so exposed. I am so moved and humbled you have supported telling the tale of Dick and Jani.
In other news, my beloved is in Canada waiting for his Embassy date at the end of the month. It truly sucks not having him here. Hard to find a way to relax and let go of the roller coaster ride that is a crowd-funding campaign when living by myself. I do have ways to do that, including going out to take a walk on a lovely Spring day...so think that's what I'll do...speaking of Spring: here's a photo of the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens about a week ago:
