Donating = Sustaining

It is a pleasure bringing you writings and other media through FWIW, but the site takes a lot of time to run (curate, write for, illustrate, code, share, etc)— sometimes a hundred plus hours a month— and incurs considerable costs to sustain. Donations from engaged readers like yourself are indispensable for it to continue running and remain Ad Free... If you derive any joy and value here, please consider becoming a Supporting Regular, with a modest recurring Monthly Donation of your choice, between a cup of tea and a dinner.

Or you can make a One-time or Recurring donation in Any Amount of your choice:

In 1966, Marianne Faithfull recorded and released her own take on “Scarborough Fair,” about six months prior to Simon & Garfunkel’s version. Her version is equally, if not more, poignant.

If you haven’t heard this album, you should. One of the best of the ‘90s. Can’t find a good live recording of this, arguably the magnum opus song, so resort to the album version.

“Purity is Obscurity” – Ogden Nash



Show your support by liking FWIW on FB and/or G+, where I post something worthwhile (illuminating, informative, poetic, comic, tragic, usefully irreverent, captivatingly absurd) sporadically, whenever the mood strikes. . . You never know what you're going to get, but if I'm doing things right, whatever it is should ultimately enrich rather than detract from your life.
