Seasons Greetings

"Bless us, any god who crabs the apples and seeds the leaf and needle evergreen."

As the clock spins, another Winter is upon us. I sit here early Sunday morning at the keyboard, thinking of all the unfinished promises ("rolling resolutions") I had made to myself at the beginning of 2014. Incomplete, still there in the brain, but no physical manifestation, not yet.

Throughout the first decade of this century, I would write and post an annual blog article loosely about and coinciding with the Holiday Season, Winter and Yule. I swear if I never post another blog article, I'll always return and do the "annual update" or "mental housecleaning" or whatever it is this short piece represents.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
