Well, if the restaurant is going down, you're better off. Soon paychecks will start bouncing and your much-beloved vendors will have to stop deliveries due to past-due bills.

Consider yourself lucky you got out in time.
Trust me...

I once watched a show where a woman set up a "station" (for lack of a better word) against the back wall of her backyard at which she'd hurl pottery and ceramics. After, she'd collect the broken pieces and make the most mesmerizing mosaics....

Who knows? Maybe mint chocolate chip and a few rounds of throwin' yo' dishes will perk you up.

Above all, Shuna, I hope you're proud of yourself. We watched as you put your heart and soul on the table for Sens, and we respect the hell out of ya for doing so.

Rock on.


I know this roller coaster ride oh-so-well. There's a seat on it with the imprints of my ass in its cushions. My name is engraved on a shiny bronze plaque behind the headrest.

Hang on, Shuna... every now and then, the lunatics who operate the ride take a break, and you can sneak off and catch your breath. xox

I hope you find strength and peace knowing that these are normal feelings and that everyone on both sides of a breakup experiences them.

Shuna, I'm sending you a warm hug. (Take a sniff: I'm wearing the perfume you like.)
Moving forward, eh?

i wish i could meet you there. mint chocolate chip is my favorite. and, of course, i wish i had some magic turn of phrase that would lessen, if only a bit, the pain you're going through.

Hi Shuna,

I just heard the sad news. Bizarre. Your dessert was the absolutely the best thing about Sens. It's like they're removing the art so they can have more room for bad reproductions. Dang. I was so looking forward to tasting your spring menu... But you are a writer and an artist too, and this gives you options and strength. I often think of Joni Mitchell's great phrase, "crop rotation".... Seems like everything came together for you at Sens but sometimes those artistic highs are temporary and then you have to breathe, take a pause and rotate the crops once again. best wishes. -Marusya

as someone recently sacked from a job for reasons not having to do with the quality of my work, I feel your pain. thanks for your words, they help. this is a crazy biz we choose to be in.

best of luck!

Shuna: I am sorry for your loss; it is clear that you are actively grieving; anger is empowering but best not to get stuck in this stage; I admire you both as a teacher and as a star pastry chef. Your desserts are awesome. I look forward to finding out where you go next so I can come and sample some more.

Shuna,

I was so sorry to read about what happened.

I don't agree with everything Anne Lamott has to say, but she has a few really good ones. One of my favorites (and I can't quote it exactly) is about how we sometimes have all of this awful stuff raining down and crushing us, but it's preparation for something beautiful that is waiting to be born.

Take care.

I hope the ice cream helped.

I was very sorry to hear this news. Although I've never eaten your creations (save for a very tasty slice of pie at the end of your pie class), if your descriptions and other people's comments are any indication, Sens clearly did not appreciate what they had. Their loss!

Portland can always use another good pastry chef...

I'm sorry to hear of your departure from Sens. My wife and I ordered three of your desserts when we ate at Sens a few months ago, and they were our favorite foods by far. We won't go back to Sens, but if you should land at a new restaurant anywhere in the San Francisco area, we WILL go there to show our support and appreciation for you and your creations.
