Let’s Talk: The Optimism of Summer

Hello friends. It has been a while, hasn’t? A lot of things have happened since the last time we saw each other. Come in, have a seat. Coffee? Tea? Water? A stiff drink? How about a slap across the face? No? Right. This isn’t Palm Beach. (Get it? Think about it.)

Ahh, you know… while I have depression and my natural enemy is the sun, it is nice to be out and soak it in during the summer. There’s something almost narcotic about it. Well, I’m not going to wax romantic about it for long. I’d like to not waste your time and get to the point.

There are a lot of terrible things going on in the world right now and it is impossible to not hear or read about them. They’re awful and shake the core of our humanity (that is if you have empathy). So today let’s just tune out for a while and share in the joy of summer. Let’s talk about what we’re looking forward to this summer and what we love about summer.

I understand not a lot people enjoy the summer and that maybe things might not be going well for everyone, but let’s do our best to not only share positive things but to be empathetic to everyone. That’s all I ask in this discussion.
