My fig Community
After ten days of sheltering in place, I finally started to clean out my home office and found this letter I had written back in 2016. I am still trying to remember what was happening at that time and why I was inspired to write this. Regardless, it seems appropriate to share this again now. I was feeling awkward for setting up a GoFundMe for the FigFamily since the restaurant is temporarily closed and we have had to lay off 95% of them with the hopes that we will reopen and hire them back. But by rereading this essay, I hope that any of our guests that we have touched over the past 22 years will consider donating — it would be a blessing to be able to write them each a check to help them get through this!
