Bernalwood blog… ACTIVATE!
We interrupt this pandemic to bring you an essential update from Bernal Heights, where celebrity author and youth wrangler Chris Colin shares this update about “Six Feet of Separation,” the newest newspaper in our neighborhood:
Did you feel that? That was the media landscape shifting!
I’m pleased to announce the publication of the first-ever Bernal Heights young people’s free pandemic newspaper, Six Feet of Separation! Unless there were others I don’t know about!
After a nailbiter of a vote on what to call this thing, “Six Feet of Separation” prevailed as the most popular title, and so it shall be. (RIP “Bernal Butts.”)
Please read Six Feet of Separation and share widely. Any design/layout blunders are the fault of the publisher, all excellence is the fault of the amazing contributors, ages 2-17 (with one 19-year-old thrown in for good luck). Here’s a tasty sample:
Thanks to everyone who wrote, drew, dictated and otherwise submitted something to this first issue of Six Feet of Separation. We are now accepting submissions for issue #2. Editorial policy is: Yes.
By the kids, for the kids. Check out Issue 1 of Six Feet of Separation!

Oh!! I’m so glad you’re back Todd. Sure missed Bernal Woods
I think you’ll find that Todd has gone through a metamorphosis (kind of like a Time Lord).
Loved the newspaper, please keep publishing!
From Australia I wish all of you success with this wonderful newspaper. I hope some Australian kids catch on and do the same thing. Bravo!
Wow. I love this so much. Go Bernal!!! Way to take care of one another.
Oh happy days! I have missed Bernalwood. Todd, I hope you’re doing well, and I hope to hear much much more from Bernalwood. It’s such a gem and an asset for the Bernal community.
HI there, This is amazing! I absolutely love it! Is it possible to send it to me in a different format? Maybe PDF? My 7 year old would like me to print it out so that he can really read and savor it like a real newspaper (he’s also not so great navigating a computer to zoom in and flip the pages, etc) I am hoping he’ll get inspired to contribute! Thanks again and hope you are staying safe! Natanya
Todd, welcome back! You were sorely missed!
I was thinking a few weeks ago “we need Bernalwood back”. Good to hear from you Todd!!
Brilliant! Keep ’em coming!
What a WONDERFUL, inventive and creative first issue. I have shared it on and cannot wait for issue #2. Go young writers of Bernal!!!!
Todd! Come back! We need you now more than ever.
What a lovely surprise to be skimming through the NYTimes headlines and see this publication featured! Hello to all my old library friends! I miss y’all <3. Tremendous work here. I look forward to Issue 2!
Could. Bernalwood. Possibly. Be. Back??? YES, please!
Glad to see you back in action Todd.
