As a celebratory aside, I turn 23 years old today. I will mainly spend the day freaking out about the fact that I share a birthday with the Walmart yodeling kid.
Another celebratory aside: Water & Music has officially passed 2,000 subscribers!! Whether this is your very first issue or you've been here since the beginning, thank you so, so much for following my work, for dealing with my rambles and for providing really useful feedback on my ideas and reporting along the way. In all seriousness, I would not be here with your help and support!
If you're a new subscriber, feel free to reach out to me anytime simply by replying to this email—I'd love to hear about what you're up to, how you came to subscribe to Water & Music and what stories or trends you'd like to read more about in the future.
And now for today's essay...[from https://ift.tt/2w3WHig]
