firesea: self-portrait

Gifts.

I will add my voice to the chorus: don't buy nothing today.

Buy local. Buy handmade. Buy art.

Buy things where the money you're spending actually goes to the person who created it. Trust me, it could make or break them, or at least help them regain the belief that it's at all possible to scrape by on such an outmoded, impractical thing as one's creative spirit.
