Illuminate

Yesterday while driving I listened to Brooke Shields discuss the circumstances that inpsired her memoir, "Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression." I was impressed by the candid, beautifully articulate, and graceful Ms. Shields, and realized how helpful such a memoir can be for those not familiar with the seriousness and dangers of PPD.

You can listen to her interview with Terry Gross here: Fresh Air

Hasn't she had a fascinating life, though? I was surprised that she did this, and yes, I think it'll help some others--
