Much like Pennsylvania’s own Punxsutawney Phil, we’ve been hiding underground here at Death Party Headquarters, waiting for August to come around before poking our heads out of the ground so our shadows can decide if we’re going to have six more weeks of 2020 being a huge, flaming, messy, surreal, disaster.
I’d like to say that our prognosticating penumbra came back with better news, but it just wouldn’t be 2020 if there wasn’t disappointment queued up, so, for the time being, we’ll still be distancing, wearing our masks, and obsessively washing our hands in an attempt to protect ourselves and our community.
And let me tell you, we sure do miss our community. (that’s you!)
We (Shawn & Julia) have been radically limiting our time on social media- taking the step of disconnecting from Facebook altogether has been a breath of fresh air but it’s also left us out of the loop with what’s going on with our friends and family – sorry we haven’t been more present during what’s been a weird few months.
But we’re still here, still talking about how to transition DPP into the new normal, and still very much looking forward to keeping the death positive conversation going. Stay tuned for news on future (virtual) meetups and online presentations!
