Happy Monday, I Was This Weekend Years Old When I Learned That Corgi Butts Float In Water.

Poppets! I know I’ve mentioned this a million times, but I’ve been finding this return to normal(ish) more challenging than the top of the pandemic, when we were all in the same boat and the only big project I took on was repairing my KitchenAid mixer. Please don’t get me wrong, I am so damned grateful we in San Francisco are nearing herd immunity, due to a vaccine-friendly populace and amazing public health efforts from our municipal leadership. I had coffee at the Ferry Building yesterday and walked along the Embarcadero and it felt like regular ol’ San Francisco, and hell, I took MUNI for the first time since March 2020 yesterday and it’s never been cleaner!

But I’m also finding myself having a similar conversation with many of my friends after I hug them for the first time, talking about how they themselves are finding this period hard, how they feel like they haven’t processed any trauma, how they’re worried they’re finding themselves rudderless as we embark on our new future. So if this is you, if you’re reading the above and nodding vigorously, know you’re not alone, that there are so many of us feeling unsettled, and remember that we’ve alllllllll got 15 months of stuff to get through, and we’ll get through it when we get through it. 

Also, we’ve got another Odd Salon SHORTS coming up next week on June 22nd! Completely virtual (looking at you, Canadian friends!) and themed ‘Love is Love’, the evening will be curated by the fabulous Fellow JR Pepper - it’s going to be so very excellent. Tickets start at $5!


You’re all awesome. Drink some water, get some rest, be kind to each other.

xoxo Amy
