This is a random post. On love. And writing. And all the things happening in my life right now. Beautiful things. Not so beautiful things.

I'm Amanda Palmer's guest on her book tour. For her beautiful book THE ART OF ASKING. "How did that happen?" Many people ask. I think it happened through love. I give away my books for free, which is giving love. Amanda gives away her music for free, which is giving love. Someone noticed, told us about each other.
