We did it!

The Russian Life Silk Road Trilogy translation project is funded, in the eleventh hour-- and it couldn't have happened without Q Blog readers, who are at least a third of the 100 or so patrons (many first names only and not all up yet). Special thanks to Sari Mantila in Finland, who was my web mentor in all things tazi more years ago than we like to remember, and who was the first Friend o' Q to sign up I think, and for Federico who put it over the top. Thank you all-- it gives me hope for new evolutionary tracks for publishing.

Off to the Peculiars' in Santa Fe to see Adventure Baby and avoid Old Timers' increasingly irrelevant fiesta-- how can you have a weekend commemorating trail drives with no street dance, no open containers, and an imported rolling paddy wagon? Meanwhile here are some celebratory Silk Road photos...

Here's another project on Kickstarter you might want to look into (I know you like good music, eh? :)

Why he needs to be supported? Listen to his version of "Creep" and you know why! His story is a touching one, and I've followed since ´09 how it's developing. From a homeless street artist to a signed artist :D
