I made a whopping $11.34 but I didn't publish much or do half of what you wrote. Staying on Medium has never been about the money. I stay because I get to meet friends like you and read the occasional story that moves or teaches me something. That said, I'd like to be making the hundreds or thousands but it's not in my wheelhouse to publish the crap that makes the money.
Bringing real feelings along with messages of inspiration and imagination to life. Awakening is the symptom of my infectious condition. Poetry is my condition.
