That is a magnificent deed, great to see your support for the nature.

You do have a way with words, Ms. Atwood. Sorry about the wart; glad it's been put to good use. I assume Pelee Island is part of Point Pelee? I visited there many years ago and it was wonderful. It's not too far away - I'm near Detroit - but the logistics of getting in and out of Canada are concerning. Not like the old days, when my son's hockey bag was all we needed.

Hi Margaret, I could do with the money. I’ve messaged you privately to let you know how to link your Substack to my Stripe. Thanks in advance!

It is so wonderful that you support birds with your subscriptions.

Even more wonderful that you don't need the money. I love that.

I don't have paid subscriptions. I could use the money.

I write because I love writing. It's under my skin. It keeps my head alive.

For now our post is just a feel good vibe about our beloved Jamaica. An up top good morning each Sunday.

When we start our sustainable farm then I may consider paid subscriptions. There will no doubt be many ideas that people will find useful for which to pay.

I love your work Margaret Atwood. Thank you for your writing and keeping our birds alive.

I work for free for birds to be present in the Symbiocene. The Symbiocene needs more of your support. I thank you for that which you have given already.

As someone who loves living in Kingsville, and cycling at Point Pelee, especially during migration times, I am excited that you re directing donations to PIBO. I've been giving serious thought to turning off the paid option on my Substack, and figuring out how to refund my subscribers- mostly because I feel an uncomfortable pressure to produce content for them, and I need to work on my mystery novel.

When I taught aikido I used to get warts on my hands sometimes. Luckily. sellotaping a slice of garlic on it overnight normally got rid of it in a few days. I came to like the smell, as well.

As a pagan, I'm sad for the many "witches" killed. We have a plaque to some (innocents accused of witchery) that were murdered near our town centre (Dumfries, Scotland). Though warts were just an excuse, obviously.
