Happy June my friends!
We made it halfway through the year and it’s been a slog – at least for me. I’m deeply unsettled by so many things that are happening in the world right now.
To keep me from crumbling into the great depressive void – I’ve been distracting myself with some good old fashioned pop culture like Everything Everywhere All At Once, Hacks, Our Flag Means Death, Switched on Pop, Kendrick Lamar’s Mr Morale & The Big Steppers, Las Culturistas, Animal Crossing Pocket Camp, Harry’s House, and the Evolving Faith Podcast.
We’ve also been enjoying some garden time – we’ve been growing a few kinds of tomatoes, peppers, sunflowers, and a peanut plant!
I’m trying to remain hopeful these days but truthfully struggling to do so. I’m finding myself zoning out more than digging in or sitting with feelings – so my summer goal is to be more present wherever I’m at.
I hope that this summer you let yourself take breaks from the news when you need to – and to be present in the places you inhabit and tune in to the people who give you peace.
Below are some events, places, and things to do to have an awesome sober-friendly summer my friends.
