happy birthday, william faulkner. I believe you'd be 111 yrs old.
thanks for being so brilliant. you and your "little postage stamp of soil" of which you wrote about.
even though I'm pretty sure I stopped thinking about being a writer, when I discovered the bar at which you set. It pained me really. As I read "As I Lay Dying". And sunk into the reality of what powerful skill truly is.
