Brunch at Kitsch’n on Roscoe
Thinking back over the previous weekend, pancakes seem to be finding their way to my plate, somehow. I am liking this trend, but prooobably need to slow down on the flapjacks soon.
You can’t see it, but I’m patting my belly right now.
An interesting note: we talked about politics, marking one of the first times our group has really done so. While we traveled extensively together, we’d never really delved much into the realms of politics/religion.
I was never a very political person, but I’m finding myself having more political conversations with family and friends. And in many ways, I have found myself trying to listen more during these conversations.
I’ve been having a lot of trouble online lately, as so many voices on social media seem to be talking at one another. Across party lines, and even within party lines.
While I believe our group share a similar mindset, these were still challenging conversations. I am still in a place where I feel like I’m processing everything that happened last week, and even among friends – these were tough conversations.
That said, I also want to share that I am in awe of Meg. Her energy, her activisim. She relayed a litany of things she’s doing – the protests she’s joining, the organizations she’s donating to. I found it inspiring.
