Especially during this month when I have not been physically present in Avalon, there has been a significant amount of telephone based consultation. People often ask how to pay me for this service but i do not have, nor do I intend to have at this time a scheduled fee for this service. I have, however, added a donation button at the bottom right of the screen. Those who feel to make a donation as exchange, please use this facility at your discretion. Alternatively there is a link to a site called Kiva which details a program of micro-loans for African small business. Although I cannot vouch for it personally, it strikes me as a sound practice, and I would be happy if loans were made there as a form of exchange.
These options are just that, and there is never any pressure or obligation in that regard.
