I Got Into A Maskless Conversation With A Stranger While Sitting On A Patio Yesterday, And It Was SO Freaking Delightful. Thank God For Vaccine Medical Miracles.

Darlings! Happiest of Wednesdays: may your coffee be delicious, your workload manageable, and your well-deserved PTO scheduled. On that note, I will be off next week on work PTO and while I hope to get a ton of writing done, I don’t know how much of it will be Missive-related. That being said, I might send a couple at weird hours when I feel so inclined, but also might not, so expect weird musings about Joshua Tree or no musings at all. Look at me being honest about what I’ll have emotional capacity for, gonna ask for another gold star in therapy today! (Editor’s note: Amy has been informed by her therapist numerous time that, in fact, there are no gold stars in therapy, and that seeking that sort of external validation is counter to the work we’re doing on emotional self-reliance. To which she says ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )


Take a deep breath: in for four, hold for four, out for four, hold for four. Box breathe that stress away, and be kind to each other, ok?

xoxo Amy
