Weekly Hubris Essay, February 2019

My February 2019 column for the Weekly Hubris has been posted. It’s here

 

 

Dear prospective supporters,

I am working with a small group of organizers to create a spring speaking tour along the Pacific coast of the United States. It will include the area between the San Francisco Bay Area in California and Portland, Oregon. The tentative schedule has me starting in the Bay Area in mid-April, 2019 and using personal automobiles and the AmTrak train to proceed from there to Portland in early May, 2019.

My existing supporters, organizers, and hosts need additional support to make this tour happen. Can you help?

We need hosts in several locations, including Monterey, San Francisco, the East Bay, Marin County, Ashland, and Eugene. Hosting is needed for speaking venues as well as housing for me and my partner and videographer Pauline along the route. We are also requesting financial support to cover airfare and local travel expenses.

As you probably know, I never charge for my events and I rely entirely on the generosity of folks like you to continue spreading this important message. If you are willing to assist, please reach out to me at guy.r.mcpherson@gmail.com. I will work with the tour organizers to put your generous support to good use.
