I share a birthday with William Faulkner. Did you know that? Also Billy Idol, which is somewhat less inspiring. What this means is in a few weeks, I’ll turn 39 for the first time (I expect the next few birthdays to be recurrences of this particular number).
Today, I read an article about a woman, Lindsey Tomlinson, who is struggling with postpartum depression while she struggles to make ends meet. That’s too many struggles for one person. Although she has gotten help for the PPD, she still worries about finances all the time, including how to afford diapers.
So, for my birthday this year, I’m getting her diapers. And if you want to get me a birthday present, which I’m sure you all do, you can also get her diapers. Her little one wears size 3 diapers in generic and size 4 in Pampers or Huggies. If you email me, I can send you the address to which you can ship the diapers. My email address can be found by clicking on the mysteriously named “Contact” tab above.
If things are tight for you right now – as they are for a lot of people – then send your warm thoughts or prayers or good karma or whatever else you’ve got.
Happy early William Faulkner’s birthday.
