My mother has been having medical problems (not always crises but sometimes) for the last 10 years, so I've had to come and help out from time to time.
She's always been grateful, but she is also VERY attached to the décor she has achieved in her home; she likes the guest bedroom to be in harmony with the rest of the house, a harmony which would be ruined if it were changed to a place where I could work. So there's nowhere to work. (Money would be less of a worry minus this inelasticity, but there you go.)
Anyway, after months of procrastination I have put ads for the Shaker pencil post bed on Craigslist, Nextdoor, and FB. Pretty sure most followers are nowhere near DC, but if anybody happens to be looking for a bed the ad is here
A reader who would like to remain anonymous has responded to a Twitter thread: X has very generously offered to buy the Shaker pencil post bed for a single mother in need of a bed, thereby giving me space to write and the recipient a terrific bed. So if you happen to know of someone in the DC/Maryland suburban area who could be helped by this offer, perhaps you could let them know.
