Hello my friends. It’s so hard to be writing to you in such desperate, heart-breaking times. It’s mind-blowingly awful out there (so many boarded-up businesses, it’s really hard to see); there is so much loss and fear and sadness and struggle across the board, but I keep seeing such resilience, strength, spunk, community spirit, creativity, generosity, heart, and soul, and it counts for so much. It’s what will get us through.
I’ve been wanting to write to you all this week, but things keep changing by the hour. I just had to say “TIME!” and send this off. These posts will be updated on tablehopper.com as things happen, and I will try to write to you again real soon with more updates. Let’s just say I’m hearing about things that are in the works.
I’ve been posting a bunch of updates on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, so please follow along there for the latest.
I’m going to keep this intro short because I just need to hit send and take a break from this computer. And exploding inboxes.
You are all in my thoughts. I love you. Be safe. Stay home. Take care of each other. Look out for those who need our help the most. Check in on your service industry friends, they really need us to take care of them for a change.
With love, ~Marcia
I didn’t know it at the time, but my last meal out was an extra-special one at the counter of The Bump Bar by California Caviar. I so look forward to being able to see a server’s smiling face like this again. It’s definitely not the case right now. Photo: © tablehopper.com.View tablehopper Newsletter from Friday, Mar 20 2020
