In Between 19: Too Many Distractions, Too Little Art

Released Tuesday, 2nd June 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
Last week, I decided to take a much needed break from social media. There’s just too much going on in the world that pulls my focus away from the areas of my life that really warrant – and frankly need – that focus – specifically my family and my art. In my final Instagram post before the break, I wrote that I wasn’t who I wanted to be lately followed by a list of distractions that to a lesser or greater extent contribute to it. After seeing the post, Jon reached out and asked if I’d like to talk about it.
A CLARIFICATION: At one point in this episode, I refer to the “idiots on both sides” and I want to be clear that I was referring to Democrats and Republicans not hearing one another, not protestors and police. I cannot possibly understand what people of color are and have been experiencing and the anger and disappointment they must feel and I would never simply dismiss how they vent or express those feelings or equate that with police brutality.
