Huh. Looks like Patreon decided to not implement the incredibly unpopular fee changes. Good.

This will be last links post of the year–I’m going to go hide for a while and try to grow back a bit (this essay by Austin Kleon really hit home). I also have a lot going on–a work trip at the beginning of next week (pray for me, I’m connecting through ORD), much-anticipated company coming for Christmas, and then I’m heading out of town for a few days.

I’ve been thinking a lot about this year and how hard it’s been for so many people, including myself. And then I read my friend Marissa’s annual St. Lucia Day post and I’m reminded of why we’re here. Marissa says it better than I can, so I’m just going to quote her here:

Well, here we are, then. Again or for the first time: this is how the year turns, this is what we do: we make the bread, we light the candles, we sing the songs. We kick at the darkness until it bleeds daylight. This is the work of the world, and we do it together. And when we find someone else who’s willing to do it next to us, we don’t let go.

I’m not letting go. See you next year.

    That Ada story was interesting. Good for her, for living until that boat showed up and took her home again.
