Hello all. `Speare Bearer here. As some of you might know, I took a hiatus from my ONE-MAN STREET SHAKESPEARE ON A BIKE tour around the US, and flew back home to Florida where my folks are about a week and a half ago to get some much needed rest, as I was suffering some pretty debilitating, persistent, and indomitable exhaustion the last two months, as well as to attend my 10 yr high school reunion. Well, that’s all done, and I feel strong again. I am hoping to fly back out to Chicago, and finish my last leg of the tour to New York from there. The problem is, I am completely out of money.

I’ve been on this tour for nearly six months now, and I think overall it’s been an even greater success than I ever imagined it could be. I’d like the chance to finish it strong, as well as make it home to New York before it gets too cold. I want to end this tour doing better shows, more frequently than any other point in the trip. So, for this last, final push I am imploring you all who believe in this project, it’s merit, and just all the work my director Jolie and I have done since last July (She’s just had a baby this past month BTW!!!!) please hit donate and give anything you can, as soon as you can, so I can book a flight to Chicago and finish this mission.

I know many of you have been supporting my throughout my journey, and know truly, from the bottom of my heart, that this trip is probably one of the best things that’s ever happened to me. I thank God for this opportunity, and I am so deeply appreciative of all of your help, and support, monetary or otherwise over the past year. But I still have a little ways to go, and I’d just like to opportunity to finish this thing the way it should be finished.

That’s it. There’s no long speech. I just need a plane ticket to Chicago, to get back on my bike before August, and the sooner you donate the better, because it will take a few days to process and transfer your donations to my bank account. If you do have the inclination to donate something, anything, please, please, please follow it. Please help if you can, and spread the word. And feel free to go back, check out my blog archives and review for yourself the crazy details of my little Shakespearean adventure thus far. God bless you.

I am coming to the conclusion that all kinds of Art, but in my case particularly the performing arts, is a service industry. We are called upon to offer the best, and most true and vulnerable parts of ourselves to make art that edifies humanity, and draws them closer somehow to the divine. If you are calling yourself an artist, and you aren’t doing this, I personally believe you are missing the mark. I say this also taking into account the basic belief that as an artist, if it means something to you, it means something to somebody else, and working from your heart helps to heal yours and theirs.
