Between relocating to a new state (physically and mentally), doing a fast deep dive into my new community and running for office this time last year, I decided to take a few steps back and quietly figure out what I want to do next and the best place to do it. It was tough at first, to go cold turkey in openly sharing my thoughts and feelings, but it was worth it. Now I’m ready to come back to this.
Many has transpired in the past 12 months. Our presidential election alone could fill thousands of posts on its own, but there is so much more. What we see happening nationally, and internationally, came from somewhere. It started small. It started local. Any head-scratching we experience on issues happening on a national level can also been seen in our local communities. I submit that these are not “trickle down” situations, but more “skyrocketing-up”.
We live in uncomfortable times where uncomfortable conversations need to occur. Emphasis on “conversations”. I submit we’ve enduring being ‘talked at’ instead of ‘spoken with’. This needs to change.
I’m entertaining either doing a podcast or a show on community television/radio (my first love) that would promote conversations and understanding called ‘All Things Being Equal’. This will pretty much be the theme of my blog as well.
Let’s see what develops.
