Hello San Francisco Bike Messengers Tribe!

I have come helmet-in-hand to ask you--you who plays the role of "crowd" in this missive--for funds for me so i may continue to go--in my endeavor to subsist.

The SFBMA Project, as it seems to have become for me, has been a bit time-consuming and so has put other projects on stand-by,  butt-planted on the wall, as it were. 

So i ask you here to contribute to the greater good of me. Oh my! Very difficult to ask for that--childhood issue thing i am sure--but i feel i must. 

But, if you choose to not contribute, it will make no difference in the posting of the 175 images (i have up to thanksgiving posted 105) yet to be posted. They will be posted nonetheless. It is your kindness i ask for, but do not demand it. The $700 is just a figure it would be nice to get to but is not necessary. There is no need to reach that figure for me to receive funds. 

So, whatever you can contribute is greatly appreciated. That simple. 

sincerely yours,


Oh! PS. I am working on the idea of making a book of the images and possibly an oral history about your experiences, and so i may want to ask for a bit more of an infusion of funds when that time comes, which, if the funds this time are enough i could begin the process quite soonly.   :)
