This is such an important reminder about what Medium does best, James Finn. Many thanks for the mention and you made me giggle with your Parisian literary bum metaphor… it is quite delightful.
Here’s another read for you, Michael K. Spencer, and a list of people who shares Jim’s motivations. Focusing on art, joy, our shared humanness, advocacy, and community is the way forward.
Merci, Jim, et bon dimanche! :-)
